The Polar Explorer Cookbook
This resource provides five activities which support learning about food, diet, digestion and food preparation and preservation all set in the context of Polar Exploration. Each activity has a context that links it to a person working in the field, which provides a context for the learning. Activities include: planning meals for individuals working in the Polar Regions, comparing historical and modern day recipes for people living and working in the Antarctic, investigating the best way to preserve food and finding out how food is stored on research stations. Each activity is linked to one or more recipes that might be eaten by people living in the Polar Regions. So there are lots of opportunities for researching, preparing and tasting different ‘Polar Explorer’ foods!
This booklet has been provided by STEM Learning and is designed to support the Polar Explorer Programme.
