This live lesson is a chance for exam grade students to ask any questions they want about life and science in the Arctic. Classes may wish to reference previous live lessons as background and to help generate questions. This really is an ‘ask-me-anything’ session.
Overview of science and life in the Arctic
If you have never joined a live lesson before, visit the support centre, where you can find a range of technical and educational information.
This live lesson is based around students’ questions. Classes may wish to reference previous live lessons and these are referenced in the supporting resources. Additional resources for generating higher-order questions are also listed.
Questions generated by your class can be submitted via the Encounter Live tab in your profile.
1. Introduction (5 mins)
Jamie will open the live lesson with a welcome and introduction to Arctic Live and the UK Arctic Research Station, as well as giving shout-outs to students and schools.
2. Q&A (40 mins)
It is then over to the students’ questions. We will be taking these in order of popularity, using the upvoting function on the live chat, and answering as many as we can.
