Winter – Antarctica + Shackleton

We love to study the adventures of Shackleton and this is the perfect time of year to focus your geography on Antarctica.  Discover some of our favorites rescources we use each year. 

Trapped by the Ice!

Great picture book!

Who Was Ernest Shackleton?

Antarctica Journeys to the South Pole

This is a thrilling read to learn more about all of the expeditions to Antarctica.  Great one for upper elementary + middle school.


This is an A&E dramatization of the story.  It does a pretty good job retelling the journey.  There are a few choice words in this one + they mention the affair that he was involved in.  I personally like the way they focus on the photographer/videographer Frank Hurley.

Winter - Antarctica - When The Sun Shines on Antarctica
