Instructional Ideas

  • Activity would be a good culminating lesson for the year
  • Take 5-10 minutes to show the class the winter-sampling expedition and its different aspects, then allow pairs of learners to choose their projects
Classroom Considerations

  • Website link in lesson preparation should be www.polartrec.com
  • Length of activity depends upon speed at which scholars complete research and length of presentations; one week should be more than sufficient
Pros

  • Provides seven different projects that participants can choose from
  • The polartrec website is full of amazing information, photos, and resources to keep pupils and teachers engaged
Cons

  • Does not include a rubric for the project and/or presentations
