There were technical issues with this live broadcast. These sometimes occur due to the nature of our locations. Please visit this alternative lesson filmed on the same day.

Preparing for this session is a great opportunity to develop your students' questioning skills. Use the selection of guides and advice in the Arctic Live Professional Development collection to support this process. Think of a variety of questions, especially open-ended questions and questions that you couldn’t just find the answer to using a search engine.
