Sixth graders use information in the anticipatory set to get them ready to write their paper about living in 1914 on an expedition with sailors and scientists to be the first to walk across the continent of Antarctica. They listen to a book on tape, read aloud, and do some mapping, and some reading and writing activities.
Is Antarctica a desert? This set of yes or no questions is intended to help learners understand multiple aspects of the continent of Antarctica. This could be used before or after a lesson on the topic, or as a pre-test review. Each slide contains both sound and rich images. The presentation is well done.
Young scholars apply the three different types of journal writing by composing one of each type on the subject of Shackleton's expedition to Antarctica. They also write a dialectical journal summarizing the facts of the expedition and analyzing the ways in which the film presents the expedition.
Students study the work done by various scientists on Antarctica. In this biology instructional activity, students play the role of researchers who must justify the importance of their study. They create a multimedia presentation about a specific issue that impacts Adelie penguins.
