These four ESRI StoryMap Collections are aimed at KS3 students, and beginners who are interested in learning about Antarctica.
Full Event Details:
We are absolutely delighted to launch a series of free, open-access Antarctic StoryMaps. These storymaps targeted at KS3 students and introduce the Physical Geography of Antarctica and Wildlife in Antarctica.
They feature interactive GIS resources, videos and student activities designed to build engagement, and can be used by teachers in the classroom or by students studying online at home! We worked with a team of experts, teachers and ESRI to build the best possible resource.
In the Physical Geography storymap, students learn about Antarctica's icey features: ice shelves, sea ice, icebergs, glaciers, and learn about why these are important and vulnerable to change.
In the Wildlife of Antarctica storymap, students learn about emperor penguins. They map some colonies from space by looking for their guano, and look at the sizes of different colonies. They then focus on that most iconic Antarctic animal, krill!
The Storymaps are supported by a new more introductory-level series of articles on AntarcticGlaciers that aim to provide content for younger students or those with less of a background in glaciology.
These Storymaps were funded by an educational bursary from Antarctic Science Ltd and were supported by the British Antarctic Survey, ESRI, and Geography Southwest! They were produced by an interdisciplinary team, including scientific experts (Bethan Davies, Huw Griffiths, Klaus Dodds, Peter Neff), technical experts from ESRI UK, and school teachers. They were produced by Laura Boyall and Jen Thornton.
