Antarctica: a WebQuest
Why is Antarctica important? Why do we need to protect it?
The climate in Antarctica
A blizzard in Antarctica
"How cold is it in Antarctica?
It's so cold you have to climb into the freezer with the ice-cream to get warm!"
(Captain of the icebreaker, Aurora Australis, Voyage 2, 1994)
Design an illustrated brochure outlining the dangers of the climate in Antarctica, and an itemised list of essential clothing for your trip. This brochure will be given to every new expeditioner who visits Antarctica.
There are two parts to this task. One is describing the elements of the climate and; two is the clothing that is essential for this environment.
