The Arctic Sea Ice Educational Package

Explore the people, animals and environment of the Arctic Sea Ice in a visually stunning and captivating framework that makes learning science and culture an adventure of its own. The Arctic Sea Ice educational package is based on a modular concept, such that educators can adapt and organize the various components of each unit to fit their own teaching methods and lesson plans. Designed for classrooms, interpretation centers and independent study, the package will be distributed on interactive DVD accompanied by a teacher's guide. Each component will include a multi-media feature, classroom and field activities, links to resources, and lesson plans for educators linked to 8-12 science and cultural curriculum.

This project was initated during International Polar Year and is being further developed by the Arctic Eider Society. Existing lesson plans are being tested in classrooms and with outreach organizations. We are currently seeking funding to expand and complete the project and to supplement distribution and workshops in northern communities.
