Life in Antarctica

In this class, we’ll explore what life is like in Antarctica.  We sometimes think of this continent as cold with very little life, but that is not true!  We’ll learn about the ‘extremophiles’ – organisms that thrive in extreme conditions.  There are plants, animals, and even fungi and bacteria that call the Antarctic home.  We will also learn about the climate and the exploration of this unique continent.  Students are welcome to share information with the class by submitting short reports.

Some of the topics covered during our 6 session summer class includes: 
Geography – Where is Antarctica? 
Weather – What is the weather like? 
Life:
  • Fish and other water life 
  • Mammals 
  • Birds  
  • Invertebrates 
  • Bacteria 
  • Fungi 
  • Other microscopic organisms 
Exploration – What is being done to learn more about this continent and what has been done in the past
Scientific research being conducted 
This class will be taught from a biblical, creationist point of view.
    About the teacher:

    About the Teacher: My name is Debbie Mackin with HIS Creation Science! I received my BS in Medical Technology degree from the University of Tampa and my clinical certification from Duke University Medical Center, Department of Allied Health. After working in clinical labs for almost 12 years, I left to be a full time at home mom at the birth of my oldest. I have 2 children and have always homeschooled them (my oldest graduated in 2014). I have a passion to help kids see our Awesome Creator through the study of science! I am a firm believer that science and faith do not need to be separate but rather the study of science can confirm scripture. By studying the creation around us, we can better know our Creator. I look forward to seeing you in class as we learn more about our Awesome Creator!

    Scanned image
    These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

    For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

    For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
    Original electronic format
    These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
