This project-based unit can be used as an individual or group activity, or assessment. The students are tasked to create a leaflet for the United Kingdom Antarctic Heritage Trust to help promote fund-raising and raise awareness to preserve the Antarctic huts used by explorers of the past.

A breakdown of the leaflet is given which includes the format to be used, including the colour scheme of the Antarctic tartan. Each page is assigned a topic including the front cover, who the AHT are, information about Antarctica and a set of rules to be followed by visitors and tourists.

Several websites are given to help with research, although independent research is encouraged, and a 3 minute film looking at why people wish to visit Antarctica, and the impacts they can have, has been included. In addition, a 22-page booklet produced by the Britain’s Antarctic Heritage gives an insight to their aims, the history of the area and what they wish to accomplish in the future.

A range of activities can be incorporated within this project, including, gathering research from print and video, annotating maps, their thoughts, and ideas.
