Interview with Robin Ellwood - Part 6 - Earthcast08

Cover (front)

Robin Ellwood gave a very interesting and passionate account of her Antarctica explorations. Middle school students asked her questions and she talked about her fascinating experience on the waters of Antarctica. 


I divided her talk in small parts having in mind classroom use. Teachers might choose to focus on one aspect of Ms. Ellwood's adventures, so here's my little contribution to the inspiring 2008 EarthCast!
