In this learning sequence, students investigate the challenges of living in the driest and windiest continent on Earth. They interpret maps to understand how remote Australia's research stations are and hypothesise reasons for their locations. Students investigate daily life on a station, the different roles of the people who live and work there and what impact the station may have on the environment. Classroom Antarctica is a collection of teaching and learning activities for Years 3 to 8 that provides a range of short investigations on topics aligned to the Australian Curriculum.
