KS1/2 Antarctica: Teachers in the Freezer

Rate this resource

From Teachers TV, this video follows a group of British teachers on a four-week expedition to Antarctica. It helps to illustrate the conditions in cold environments and how animals are adapted to live in such conditions. It demonstrates what humans need to do to be able to live at the South Pole. Designed for use in primary school 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.
