Year 5/6 class- 5 weeks 2016
This was a fantastic topic-so many rich and relevant learning experiences, and lots of ways to get creative as well. The students loved sewing these penguin softies and were so proud of them. They also created pastel penguin art works and water colour penguin art works. Highlights included creating kahoot quizzes about Antarctica, researching their own topics of interest related to Antarctica, learning all about survival stories of Shackleton and Mawson, and learning about the race to the South Pole. This was the first time I had taught 'Antarctica' and it is now one of my favourite topics!
