Week 7: Homework – Friday 2nd November: Topic

This week we have been learning about Shackleton and his expedition. We have read Ice Trap! and understand the journey he went on.  Think about the equipment he had when he made his journey in 1914 on Endurance. How different would that journey be today? How would the equipment be different?

Imagine you are a designer and have been asked to invent a pair of snow boots for an Arctic explorer. What materials would you use? What features could they have? Let your imagination run wild!

Draw and label your design clearly. Then write an explanation about how your boots work and the impact they would have on the explorer’s journey.
