Overview

Get ready… as a brave young sailor looking for adventure. You are about to join Ernest Shackleton's expedition to icy Antarctica as a polar explorer. It's Freezing! Top Tips from Experts: Keep a sharp lookout for icebergs-they could sink your ship. Avoid getting scurvy by eating the organs of freshly killed animals. Don't forget to take a pack of cards for those long, cold evenings. Use seal blood to make your boats waterproof. Learn how to play soccer on the ice-it's hard to stay on your feet!
