A worksheet to assist students to plan their ideas.
What is it like to live on the continent of Antarctica? In winter, there are few people, no incoming supplies and darkness for a long period of time. In summer, the population swells to 4000 and there is sunlight for a long period. How do humans adapt to living here?
How is human interaction in Antarctica affecting the climate? Fossil fuels are creating damage to the ozone layer above the South Pole. How can we help?
Tourism is becoming increasingly popular but as yet tourists cannot stay on the continent.
All activities being completed in Minecraft are done in conjunction with our Geography unit: Antarctica. The students are also listening to the novel 'Stay' by Jesse Blackadder.
As a class, research what it is like to live in Antarctica. Examine books, website and YouTube clips to get a feeling for the environment and climate. Note that of the Australian stations, Mawson has 2 wind turbines. Examine the website 'Australian Antarctic Division' http://www.antarctica.gov.au/ (If possible, organise a video conference with them - not available this year)
Discuss tourism to Antarctica. Refer to 'International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators' website https://iaato.og/home to gain an understanding of the rules and regulations.
Students create collaborative groups and choose an area of focus - eco friendly resorts or one of the Australian Stations in Antarctica.
Students research station layouts, features of stations, essential services and how renewable energy can assist in Antarctica. Research eco-friendly cold climate resorts and apply knowledge to an Antarctic design.
Using the world, 'Antarctica_Bedrock.mcworld', teleport students to their locations to begin creating.
Students will work collaboratively to create or recreate buildings in Antarctica.
Students encourage one another and peer teach when necessary.
Students use signs in their world to identify locations.
Students can create accurate representations of the stations and use creativity to develop the resorts.
