Classroom Antarctica

Another day another website, this time an Australian website called: Classroom Antarctica.

This useful educational website by the Australian Antarctic Division is designed for teachers and students, and is packed with ideas, references, and resources. The idea of the website is to get the teacher to engage with their students on Antarctic issues. Our favourite parts of the website were the 'exploring' and 'living' sections.

According to the website: 'The activities can be used to enhance writing, literature, art, team building and creative thinking skills in your students as well. The activities focus on the study of significant environmental and social issues from a global perspective and promote an appreciation of the important role of Australians in Antarctica.'
