Antarctica is arguably the continent that most people know the least about, so it is nice to find out that the Royal Geographical Society (in partnership with the British Antarctic Survey) has created this website which explores all aspects of life on this landmass. The "Imagining Antarctica" area is a fine place to start, and visitors can watch a short video clip about the continent, test their existing knowledge with a short quiz, and then participate in a "being there" activity. Other engaging sections include "A Changing Climate", "Living There Today" and "What Future?" The site also lists all of the resources by format, including audio files, video clips, Word documents, and images. Finally, the site also includes a "Teachers' Area", which offers a number of learning activities for students and teacher notes that are correlated to each of the main sections of the site.
