The Kaspersky Commonwealth Antarctic Expedition team would like to get young people involved and thinking about Antarctica. To enable you to easily integrate the expedition into your classroom we have compiled a few science and english based worksheets. These worksheets are aimed at pupils aged between 5 and 12. We hope that by incorporating these into your lessons you can begin a dialogue with your class about the fragile nature of Antarctica and foster a interest in the more remote parts of the globe with the young.
We hope you find some of these resources useful and please do not forget to send in as many photos as you like of your school taking part.

Aurora is our virtual team member who, throughout the expedition, has been passing on interesting facts about the Antarctic on the progress page and keeping an eye on all those schools participating in our schools challenge.
How did you do? Did you get to the South Pole? Did you beat the team?
We'd love to hear from anyone who took part in the challenge. Send pictures of you and your friends taking part in the Challenge to Aurora at email@example.com and we will put them up on this page - Don’t forget to tell us your name, age and school! And remember, we have certificates waiting for all those who managed to reach the South Pole - all we need is a picture of your progress chart and we will send you your certificates.
