Simple lesson that ask students to research and examine the natural & mineral resources that are available on Victoria Island and other Arctic areas. Students will also explore the possible environmental impact of mining for those resources in such areas.
In this lesson, students explore the culture of the Northern Canadian native Inuit. They will examine food, tools, clothing, culture, ways of life, etc. Then, using the information they have gathered, students will compare it to the cultural aspects of Australian Aboriginal People.
This lesson explores what is needed for a fully functioning community. Students will learn about how the surrounding environment affects what is built, what foods are supplied and resources are available, and ultimately, they will learn that a town's structure is largely affected by the environment it's built on.
On Chris & Clark's last trek across Victoria Island, they happened upon a variety of artifacts used by the Inuit a long time ago. In this lesson, students play the role of the archaeologist, examining pictures of artifacts and suggesting what they may have been used for.
This is the perfect 'precursor' lesson to the iiNet 1000HourDay Expedition. In this activity, students are to write a report on Victoria Island. Through this, students will learn in detail the various aspects of Victoria Island, and gain an insight into what Chris & Clark would have had to research before they planned the expedition.
Students will explore different types of graphing techniques as they monitor the progress and conditions of Chris & Clark's journey.
This is a fun set of activities that allow students to explore and carry out traditional games of the Inuit. Students research different traditional sports and games that people who have lived in the Arctic have played for over a thousand years, and on a specified day, teachers can organise a sort of INUIT OLYMPICS, where students get to play some of these games.
