Arctic Passage


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.
