After investigating the challenges of living and working in Antarctica and how researchers prepare for them, students evaluate the insulating properties of a variety of fabrics. Throughout this six-day unit, they collect their findings in a portfolio. The comprehensive curriculum materials contain teacher tools, which include individually downloadable readings, detailed daily breakdowns of tasks, teacher strategies for using the activities, a portfolio grading sheet, a project rubric sheet, and additional readings; an online activity in which students review the preparation materials given to researchers before traveling to Antarctica; two classroom activities,an experiment to test the insulation and waterproof properties of a variety of fabrics, and a Jeopardy-style game in which students write the answers and questions; several readings that provide a broad perspective, including an excerpt from Edmund Hillary's journal and Q&A interviews with a safety engineer and a field support services manager. A student handout with guidance for putting together their portfolios and examples of creative final projects is included.
