KS3/4 Antarctica - A Future in the Balance

Description

Designed to stimulate debate in KS3/4 citizenship lessons, this programme explores the key political and environmental issues that continue to surround Antarctica.

It looks at the value of scientific research, examining its increasing detrimental impact on the natural environment of the continent. The issue of tourism in Antarctica is also discussed, in addition to the threat that mining could pose to the environment, particularly if the ice continues to melt.

Each example is illustrated with a case study that ties in with the KS3 citizenship curriculum under Unit 21: people and the environment.

Part of the series: The Big Debate
