Pemmican is used a lot. You could try and make some and see if you like it or just think  about what explorers may do!

Here is the recipe: Pemmican

 

 

Challenge 3: Menu Design

Using your research, create a menu

for a set of arctic explorers.

Remember they need between 5,000

and 7,5000 calories each day to stay

alive and do the important things they

need to for themselves but also need

to keep athletic and healthy so they

need to eat a balanced diet.

Challenge 4: What Not To Wear

What clothes are warm?

How can you stay warmer for longer?

Have a play here: What Not to Wear

What do you notice about the type of clothing that is needed?

 

Find out and research all the different types of clothing that you might find to wear in the Arctic.

What materials are they made out of? Why do you think that is the case? 

 

Challenge 5: Fashion Designer

Design an outfit for someone who is

going to explore the Arctic.

Remember to think about what you

learnt from challenge 4.

You could do this on a body template,

as an exploded diagram (all parts separate), make the clothes to add to the body template out of paper or any other way.

Challenge 6: Revise Survival Tips

Now you have thought about keeping

warm and eating in the Arctic.

Go back to your survival tips from last week’s

tasks if you can.

Are there any survival tips you would like

 

to change now? Improve? Get rid of?

Make sure you have ten very clear survival tips including tips about clothes and how to keep warm and eating and what to eat to keep healthy.
