Emergency ice shelters.

Ice shelter (2)

During the last two weeks 2W have been finding out about Robert Falcon Scott and his research expeditions to Antarctica. The boys looked at the harsh conditions of Antartica and the type of landscape that Scott faced. They learnt about the race to reach the South Pole against the Norwegian Amundsen where they were disappointed to discover that when Scott reached the South Pole he and his men found Amundsen’s Norwegian flag planted at the Pole; he had lost the race. The boys then looked at the possible reasons why Amundsen had beaten him to the Pole.
Then during their Art lesson the boys were set a challenge to construct an emergency shelter that Scott could have built if his tent had been destroyed in a blizzard. They were only allowed to use the resources that Scott possibly would have had at his disposal, like skies and ski poles (lolly sticks), fabric and ice (sugar cubes!). They rose and met the challenge admirably.
