Exploration And Skills – Antarctica (Unit Of Work)

This booklet introduces and teaches the students how to read longitude and latitude, as well as help students develop their descriptive, sensory and research skills. The students investigate the two teams who raced to the poles in in 1911 and study the problems caused by the increasing number of tourists visiting Antarctica. Ways to reduce these impacts are discussed in addition  to whether the students think Antarctica should be protected or not. The booklet is concluded with the students designing a leaflet to help promote funding to preserve the huts used by Robert Scott’s Antarctic Exhibition team.

A range of individual and group activities are incorporated within this booklet, including, gathering research from print and video, annotating thoughts, and ideas, and using senses to describe their findings.

Willson Education

Hi, I'm a Geography teacher with experience educating at various levels across the south of England, ranging from mainstream schools, SEN and extra-curricular tuition. I also have experience in teaching Humanities, English and PSHE topics, as well as having worked as a cover supervisor and an exams invigilator. I've also had the chance whist studying and practising Geography to visit some fabulous locations around the world such as the Sahara Dessert, the American Heartland for my dissertation and Germany as part of my degree study programme. All of my experiences so far have added to my passion for the subject and I continue to produce and edit educational material today with a view to passing on my enthusiasm for the subject as well as inspiring new Geographers.
