The Webquest says to complete it in groups of three, but we would prefer that you do it on your own.
Play these games and list three things you learn about Mount Everest in the comments section:
Before a person climbs Mount Everest, they must fill-out something called a “Body Disposal Form.” In this form, the climber says what they want done with their body if they die while they’re on the mountain.
There are three choices — leave it on the mountain, have it cremated, or have it sent back home.
Please read this Body Disposal Form. Even though it is for a mountain that is near Everest called Cho Oyu, it is similar to Everest’s form.
If you were going to climb Everest, which choice would you make and why?
Only answer this question if you feel comfortable writing about it! It’s okay not to answer this question. Also, if you want to answer the question but don’t want it published here, that’s okay, too. Just say that in your response and Mr. Ferlazzo will be the only person to read it.
What is the highest physical place — mountain, volcano, a tall building — you have ever been on?
Please describe it, when you were there, who you were with, and how you felt when you were there.
Would you go there again? Why or why not?
What are other tall places you’d like to visit? Why?
Look at the Everest Websites on the ARW page of Mr. Ferlazzo’s Website. Which are the three you like the best and why?
Sir Edmund Hillary and his Sherpa guide Tenzing Norgay were the first two climbers to reach the top of Mount Everest.
Why do you think he tried to do something no one else had ever done? If you had become as famous as he became after his climb, would you have tried to spend so much time helping the people who live in Nepal? Or would you have just tried to go out and have a good time? Why?
Three years ago, forty climbers at Mount Everest saw a man dying and passed him by without trying to help him. They thought that reaching the top was more important.
Please read a newspaper story about it here and then answer the questions: If you were a climber and saw someone dying, what would you do? Why?
Complete this Climbing Mount Everest webquest. You will have to download the documents that have the questions to answer. Then just copy and paste them into the comments section or, if you have difficulties doing that, just print them and hand them in.
Please type your “ABC” response to this question in the comments section of this post.
