The Prepare Students section will get your class ready for the Antarctica virtual field trip!
The Expedition South field trip takes place in August 2016 and will include audioconferences and videos. Following this expedition is an ideal way to introduce the Antarctic context before the actual field trip later this year.
The Antarctica field trip experience is made up of a number of components which take place from Monday 14 November to Friday 18 November, 2016.
All components in the table below are updated daily during the Antarctica field trip. They remain on this website and can be used after the date of the live field trip.
|Classes can send an ambassador (small toy) on the field trip with the LEARNZ Field Trip teacher. Daily ambassador updates can be read by all enrolled classes.|
|Students can post their own questions on a Web Board to be answered by the field trip experts. The web board will be open for one month before the field trip until one month after the field trip. Once it has closed, the Ask-an-Expert link will go to a new page which has a selection of questions and answers from the field trip Web Board.|
|Students put questions live to experts who are on location during the field trip. Audioconferences can also be listened to live via the Internet audiostream or from a recording.|
|Shelley the LEARNZ Field Trip Teacher writes a detailed diary for students to read, accompanied by 10 captioned images and panoramas for each day of the field trip - including the travel day on Monday.|
|Students meet each expert involved in this field trip via a profile page and short video. Potential career and training paths can also be explored on these pages.|
|All website and field trip photos are available in one easy-to-use location, where students can browse and select to further their interest and learning.|
|Short, curriculum-rich videos with questions and answers are made on each day of the field trip and uploaded in the evening for viewing the following day.|
