Preparing a Passport

Lesson Topic: Travel
Objectives: In this combined research and creative art activity, students will create a passport for their journey to Antarctica. In the process, students will learn some of the introductory information about traveling to Antarctica, especially about the continent itself. Students can use the stamp templates to record how many countries they will pass through on their journey to Antarctica. This passport can then serve as a journal for recording and compiling their Antarctic activities.
