What is in this Course?

Before the students can start to understand life in the Arctic Circle, it is extremely important they understand their own countries’ journey.

During this short course, we will start to understand the geology, the geography and the geological history of the place where you currently live. Using this as a benchmark or starting point, we will then delve into what life looks like in the Arctic and how it affects each and every organism on the planet.

This will allow your students to have a concept of time and the difference between time and geographical time, which is usually on a larger scale.

This is all about gaining perspective.
