Questions of the Day

This adventure featured regular dispatches from Antarctica. Each dispatch included a "pop" question at the end of it. Some of the questions were simple to answer, especially if students looked through this site. Others were more open-ended; there may not have had a "right" answer, although each answer carried different consequences. Some of these questions were answered by noted polar explorers and historians. We also posted selected answers sent in by our audience. The answer to each question appeared in the following day's dispatch.

Below is a link to all the questions and answers. If you're a teacher, you may want to use these questions as an assessment tool.
