Polar resources sought for teacher web site...

Hello, I am working on a collection of K-12 educational resources related to polar studies for Teachers' Domain, a free K-12 digital library ( produced by WGBH, Boston's public television station. We are in the process of searching for media-rich resources (especially those containing video material or Flash interactive activities) that address current themes in polar scientific research as well as issues facing communities living in polar regions. If you have any recommendations for particular resources or interesting leads, please contact me directly at: (617-300-3944).
