A full set of 11 lessons covering the topic of Exploring Antarctica:
L1: Intro to Antarctica - design your own plant/animal
L2: Expedition to Antarctica
L3: Why is Antarctica so cold? - the effects of the Earth's tilt
L4/5: The Physical Landscape of Antarctica - including the making of 3D version of Antarctica's landscape!

A variety of activities have been included within these lessons to maximise engagement and cater for differing learning styles. Examples of activities include - maps from memory, taboo, peer-teaching, a murder investigation lesson and the use of Dulux colour charts for ranking.
I have also included an End of Unit test that is ready to use, or a good starting point for you to create your own! Challenge activities (in pink bubbles) have also been included in each lesson, and homework activities have been set throughout.
Used with a high-ability Year 9 class, but can easily be adapted to fit other ages and abilities.
Some parts, i.e. information, have been taken from other resources, but most activities are my own.
Please rate my resources! Thank you and I hope your students enjoy these lessons as much as mine did :)
