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.
