  • Antarctica Homework Help

    I'm doing two assignments on Antarctica for school and I need help.

    For the first one I need to answer five questions and present the answers in a workbook. Plus I have to write a fifteen minute oral presentation about Antarctica.

    The questions are:

    * What is Antarctica and what is it like?
    * How have humans interacted with Antarctica?
    * What impact has human activity had on the area?
    * What does the future hold for Antarctica?
    * Why is Antarctica worth saving?

    The second project is that I (with two others) have to design and build a model of an appropriate form of housing in Antarctica.

    The first project is the one I'll be needing help with. Does anyone have any suggestions for the questions? I'm using this site for alot of my info but I need some wider resources. Any suggestions?

      LOL!!! :grin:

      Nice to see I get a nice big room! There's a lot of bathrooms, as I recall we had 2 toilets and 2 showers for up to about 25 of us - how times have changed - or maybe people have got dirtier. Oops just noticed the segregation by side - that accounts of it.

      You're a bit late for VI though, maybe you could sit on it for a while until Halley VII is needed?

        my overall rating is 5.5, thats .5 to the good!! i'm happy to see that it's success is by far exceeding my initial forecast. thank you. if it was .5 the other way it would have been a total finacial loss.

          Re: 5 Questions

          Hey I need some more help with the 5 questions. I've tried researchign on the net and books but I can't find much on some of the questions. These troublesome buggers are:

          * What impact has human activity had on the area?

          There's been whaling,sealing and waste dumping that has had a negative effect and things like the Antarctic Treaty that have had a positive effect. I can't think of anything else.

          * What does the future hold for Antarctica?

          There's the global warming issue but I've got pretty much nothing on this question as well.

          * Why is Antarctica worth saving?

          This one seems easy but it's really tricky. Ummm..... it's one of the few places where scientists can conduct global warming tests and it is almost untouched by humans making it very unique....

          I really need some help with these questions.

            I never respond to such requests as your homework is your homework and no-one elses.

            * What impact has human activity had on the area?

            There's plenty of information on this on this site if you look, use the search function.

            * What does the future hold for Antarctica?

            * Why is Antarctica worth saving?


            These are questions that I guess your teacher is hoping you will use your brain to answer by giving your opinion supported by some information you find. In both cases, no-one is going to give you the answer, you might find a cut-and-paste answer on the web, but I hope that you don't :neutral:

            The informational pages on this web site have enough to answer almost any homework or assignment on Antarctica - I know this because plenty of people email me or leave messages to tell me so. If anything new arises I add extra informational pages - but not as an answer to any one specific question. You need to do some work and interpretation of your own.

            p.s. this is a generic answer as well as specific as once the search engines pick the thread up, many reluctant students will visit it - the answer is the same - do your own homework! :mrgreen:

              I really need some help with these questions.

              my advice. copy from all the smart kids(whisper), shhhhh hope paul doesn't see this, luckily for me there were lots around back in the day. sometimes you gotta bribe them, but thats just a technicality.

              human activity. shhhh here as well, tell your teacher that your scared the CIA is gonna come get you for uncovering all the drug and money laundering that goes on down there. solved.

              global warming. it's proven even the smartest computers cannot keep up with weather conditions and predict accuretly if it is real. by such examples as hot year and cold year fluxuations. what they did do is put in peoples mindsets that it most likely is el nino..then there's that whole gas thing. the grease in the gears. with such a broad topic you'll have to predicate your own ideas. a sense.

              worth saving this is quite ovbious. it's beautifull, and have you ever watched that movie water world? i meen do ya really want to pal up with kevin kostner on a ship? arggggg

                      this is easy antartica is looking at the risk of losing all of its ice which will mean that all the animals (polar bears, penguis ect) will die and that the rest of the world will be flooded. and we might not end up with ice for another ice age for 10 000 years
                      hope this has helped

                          Firstly, you got all of that from "The Day After Tomorrow."

                          Secondly, polar bears don't live in the Antarctic.

                          Thirdly, PUNCTUATION, deary.
