Discovering Antarctica


This truly well-done website, by the U.K.'s Royal Geographical Society, provides an excellent look at the frozen, windswept continent of Antarctica. Extremely student-oriented, it includes many colorful videos, photos, and interactive activities that will enhance students' understanding of this last great wilderness. It also includes an extensive "Teachers' Notes" section to help create lessons incorporating the site's features.
