How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

In spite of the number of nature conversationalist living in Antarctica, none of the people Herzog talks to mentions the footprint they are leaving on the continent. Why?

Have you ever dreamed of visiting the South Pole? What things would you want to see or do? How does this documentary’s look at the people living there contrast with other nature programs you may have seen about Antarctica?
