Survival in the cold
28 August 2008Add to My Folder
This poster explains how our bodies react to extreme cold conditions and gives instructions for how to survive in the cold. The text would tie-in with a science topic on keeping warm and insulation.
Shared teaching and learning
- What do the children know about keeping warm in cold conditions? Do they know why we shiver and which part of our body loses the most heat? Discuss what an insulator is.
- Watch extracts from television programmes that tell how individuals have survived in extreme weather conditions and offer advice to the viewer – eg, by Ray Mears or Bear Grylls.
