Frozen Kingdoms - Exploring with Jed.

As a part of our Frozen Kingdoms project we delved into the history of exploring the Polar Regions with Jed. While the focus was mainly on the Antarctic, Jed also described some of the other expeditions to the Arctic.

As you can see below the pupils got to try on some of the clothing and, to show them what hard work it was, a couple of brave volunteers dragged Mr Wyness to get some idea of what it might be like to drag 15st sleds across the ice!

This really opened up the pupils to the trials and challenges that faced these early Polar explorers, and demonstrated that even now visiting these areas is a major undertaking.
