Teaching Tips

  • Useful when teaching about observed changes in the Arctic. Snippets of this series of voices on the video could be used for a personal perspective to either introduce or conclude climate lessons.

About the Science

  • This video features members of the 1986 Steger International Polar expedition speaking of their experiences and observations since that time. They discuss how sea ice cover has changed, the impacts on wildlife, the temperature of air and water in the Arctic, and the ripple effects that can be noted around the world.

About the Pedagogy

  • The video itself is not accompanied by any teacher support materials but the website has many associated resources available.

Technical Details/Ease of Use

  • Good quality video and audio. Editing is effective but somewhat distracting.
