After Ernest Shackleton chose his crew the next thing he had to do was to choose a ship! Ernest had to raise money for his expedition and he didn’t want to buy a cheap boat for such a dangerous expedition, it had to be well made! Lucky for him the ‘Polaris’ was a ship built by an excellent craftsman, Christian Jacobsen, from Norway. 

Before Shackleton bought this ship and renamed it ‘The Endurance’, it was owned by Adrien de Gerlache and Lars Christensen. It was original used for tourist trips and polar hunting but was one of the strongest ships in the world. 

Task today: 

Read carefully the following double page spread from Shackleton’s journey and any words in bold you are unsure of check out the glossary in the second image. You’ll need to create a pamphlet/sales leaflet this week to give to Shackleton to convince him to buy your boat! You’ll have two days to complete this! You’ll need to use a mixture of facts from the image below and your own opinion. E.g. “The bow is 1.3metres thick which is especially strong (fact) and will surely smash through any ice that gets in its way (opinion because it isn’t proven yet).  

Feel free to add diagrams to your leaflet and fold it into different styles:
