LI – To understand the chronology of events in the Shackleton Expedition

Have a watch of the following clips up until the selected time points:

Shackleton - watch until 3:16

Shackleton Endurance Mission - watch until 1:03

28 Men Lost In Antarctica But What They Did to Survive Is Amazing - watch until 5:42

Next, watch the pre-recorded reading of Shackleton’s journey and make notes of the main parts of the story from The Endurance leaving Plymouth to being crushed in the ice of the Weddell sea.

Shackleton's journey up to page 34


Create a timeline of the events of the journey. At each point note down:

  • How the boat will be feeling at each point
  • What is going on aboard. 

This will help you later in your monologue!
