The Expedition – Educational Resource

the expedition
The Expedition role play activity – the Royal Scottish Geographical Society.

The Expedition follows the story of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914-1916 led by Sir Ernest Shackleton. However, the resource does not reference names, specific locations or the year. Hence, The Expedition is in the hands of the participants and their imaginations and only once they complete the journey will they discover that they have re-enacted a true story.

The Expedition is a role play activity. Eight actors are required to play eight characters. The actors are given a short biography, followed by a numerical sequence of action cards to read in turn with the full cast until the story is complete.
