This incredibly rich site, from Public Broadcasting's Nova series, is based on two Arctic explorations, one disastrous and the other successful, to find the fabled Northwest Passage. The site offers a description and a transcript of the Nova broadcast, a Teachers' Guide, and an amazing assortment of activities for students, offering them the chance to understand why one expedition failed (mysteriously disappearing) and the other succeeded. There's even a quiz on igloo building.
