Previous Expedition Materials
The Bancroft Arnesen Expedition curriculum is based on Liv and Ann’s historic crossing of Antarctica. It is customized for Kindergarten through Sixth Grade (ages 5 to 12 years old) and is available in English. The curriculum incorporates life skills and focuses on subjects that include science, language arts, art, health, social studies, geography, math, history, and physical education.
Peaceful Conflict Resolution
From playground fights to civil wars, conflict is endemic in the world. This curriculum, “Exploring Cultural Conflicts: Journeys Towards Peace,” is intended to help teachers work with students to develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions needed to resolve conflicts peacefully. The curriculum is available in Norwegian, Russian and English.
Dare to Dream
Inspired by Ann and Liv’s commitment to encourage others to pursue their dreams, Dare to Dream is an activity-filled curriculum to help kindergarten through sixth-grade students develop one of the life’s most important skills — the ability to set and achieve goals. The curriculum is currently only available in English.

Augsburg River Semester
Augsburg College, located in Minneapolis, MN, has created a new program called River Semester, which allows students to spend a semester paddling down the Mississippi while conducting field research on various topics such as water pollution or urban riverfront revitalization. The program begins in Minneapolis and follows the course of the Mississippi River, culminating in New Orleans. As part of the program, students are able to attend town hall meetings and meet with environmental organizations along the river.
