"As an educational resource, Antarctica is extremely broad in scope with the potential to contribute to a number of study areas," from the sciences to history, sociology, and politics. Authored by molecular biologist Clive Evans at the University of Auckland, this Web site provides a convenient resource for introducing Antarctica into the classroom and could be adapted for a range of grade levels. Luckily for life science educators, the site focuses primarily on Antarctic biology, adaptation, human impact, and the environment. Web pages contain detailed background information, as well as questions and suggested activities to stimulate discussion and help students explore the material. A more in-depth exploration of the material requires additional resources; references and Web links are provided.
