This is a lesson plan for a 45-50 minute lesson designed for 5th-8th grade to give an overview of Antarctica.
This Antarctica lesson plan assumes the students do not know what they are going to study – if they do it won’t work.
The lesson comprises a game, a link to a video and a slideshow that explains the clues in the game.
The game provides clues about Antarctica – you give them one at a time to the students and see who figures out the correct continent the quickest. Exact details on how to run the game for maximum fun are provided.
Once the game is over, you go through the slideshow to why each clue pointed to Antarctica. Finish up the lesson with a brief Youtube video.
