Is it prep time yet?  Your schedule is jam packed with tests, runny noses, lost assignments, and meetings.  Relax, sit down, grab a cup of coffee...this is the Teacher's Lounge and we've done all the work.  Use this information to help plan your complete Arctic Blast 2001 educational adventure.

Find a quick summary of the expedition and our educational goals in the program outline.  The Curriculum section provides a brief glimpse into the curriculum package and how it correlates with the expedition.
Ultimately, we would like each classroom to use the K - 12 nationally accredited curriculum package.  Each of the 16 units contains background information, work sheets, and idea gems.  Use the experiences of team Arctic Blast as a springboard for multi disciplinary learning.
