Week 2: Climbing Mount Everest the first successful ascent.
This week we are learning about the first ever successful ascent of Everest. We know how hazardous the conditions are when climbing this mountain from our work last week so this event was a major event in our history.
Resources for this lesson
1. Look at the photographs and facts on the powerpoint or PDF file.
2. Watch the documentary about their ascent (it is 58 minutes long) and make a note of the events.
We will use this next week to help us to write a diary entry as one of the successful climbers.
If you are teaching this in school, the word document might help you as a reference point.
