Synopsis

The visual extracts included in this Teachers' Pack have been taken from the beautifully illustrated new book, Everest: The Remarkable Story of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, written by Alexandra Stewart with contemporary artwork by Joe Todd-Stanton.

Each visual included in this pack is accompanied by corresponding discussion questions and activities linked to important events in the story of these inspirational men as they battled to reach the top of the world's highest mountain.

This pack provides the perfect resource to inspire pupils ages 9-11 to reach for their dreams, conquer their fears and trust in the power of determination and teamwork to achieve their ambitions!

Discussion Ideas

The Discussion Ideas in this pack include inspiring children to talk about their own dreams and aspirations; consider the challenges facing Hillary and Tenzing and the historical context of their achievement; and explore the teamwork that is needed for such achievements.

Activities

Each section of this pack includes a writing activity, including diary writing, writing as reporters, writing a 'Survival Guide' and creating their own 'Pyramid of Human Effort'.
