Curriculum and Activity Guide Module 1

Explore: The Arctic

The human history of science and exploration is underpinned by the skill of observation, not least that compiled in the traditional knowledge of Natives peoples—the world's first explorers, who adapted to survive on every corner of the planet. An ocean people, Inuit migrating from Canada were the first to settle in Greenland some 4000 years ago. Knowledge passed from generation to generation is at the heart of lifestyle and identity of the Native Kalaallit in Greenland, and has been holding tremendous value to our collective knowledge—not least today in our study of climate change and sustainable development. Chat topic: Arctic exploration.
