Lessons from Ice
If you wanted “to get away from it all,” where might you go? The park? A bench next to a lake?
In this video from National Geographic, Cristina Mittermeier talks about her affection for Antarctica, a place a long way from most of what the world knows. It’s also a place that may be teaching us something important.
What’s a lesson you took away from this video? Does it tie to something else you have studied?
There are many ways to tell a story, but sometimes seeing a place through the personal reflections of one person can make more of an impact than a mountain of facts. If you know the story and the facts are in alignment, your understanding is all the deeper.
Think about something you’ve learned recently. Could you tell about it through a personal story, rather than simply repeating information you’ve heard or read?
