Explore Antarctica in this video designed for KS1/2 geography and science lessons, looking at the area and how humans can live in such conditions.
Describing where Antarctica is, what the climate is like and what it takes to live there, visiting teachers from England explain clothing, food they eat and how they travel around.
Part of KS1/2 Antarctica series, the video relates to Unit 7 of the KS2 geography curriculum, and covers geographical enquiry and skills elements. It also links in with science Unit 4C: Keeping Warm, and Unit 3C(3): Choosing materials for a purpose.
A group of British teachers embark on a four-week expedition to Antarctica and demonstrate how humans are able to live on the South Pole. Designed for use in KS1/2 geography and science lessons, the programme begins with an explanation of where Antarctica is, what the climate is like and what it takes to live there. The teachers then show what clothes people should wear in Antarctica, how they should travel and what food they should eat in order to survive such cold conditions. They also explore a science project that tests what effect the cold has on their bodies. .
