Year 7 students have been working incredibly hard in creating entries for ‘Antarctica Day Flags’ competition in order to celebrate ‘Antarctica Day’ which is on December 1st. The students were required to create a flag as Antarctica is a global common and therefore does not have its own flag. The students were taught a sequence of lessons based on the characteristics of Antarctica including, climate, landscape, animals, potential threats and past explorers. They then used all of this information to create a flag that represents this last great wilderness.
The 5 best Antarctica flags have been sent to a researcher in Antarctica. This is an amazing opportunity for our youngsters as it will allow them to learn about Antarctica directly from a researcher. Their flag will be photographed in Antarctica and the students will be sent a certificate.
