Topics covered include the wildlife, The Antarctic Treaty that protects the area, discoveries made, the ice sheet, the impact of global warming on the environment.

The Amazing Antarctic Trek
This resource provides two ways to engage learners in using latitude, longitude, and research skills. In pairs, or on their own, learners will locate several Antarctic regions on a map. They will write the name of the place and a few key details that describe the location. In another version of the activity, finding map locations based on latitude and longitude will lead them to envelopes containing questions about Antarctica which they must answer through quick research or topic look up. Either way you use it, the idea is a good one that will definitely engage your young geographers.
