Antarctic Schools Pack Contents

Examining the contents of the Antarctic schools pack

The pack consists of 15 topics, ranging from climate to the Antarctic Treaty System, living and working in Antarctica to environmental protection, and the ozone hole to tourism. Each topic comprises a double-sided worksheet and three double-sided pages of resources. The worksheet provides an introduction to the topic and a series of tasks to be undertaken by students. The resources provide a wide range of materials including scientific data, photographs, satellite images, maps, and written summaries of major issues. Both worksheets and resources use materials that are new and unavailable elsewhere.

A special set of teachers' notes accompany the pack. This provides guidance on the key study skills as well as expert answers to the tasks set in the worksheets. The Pack and teachers' notes have been provided copyright-free for educational use by UK schools and colleges. Wherever possible, materials have been designed for multiple photocopying.
