        The Greely Expedition | Teacher's Resources: Discussion Guide

        This guide is intended to spark discussion of, and reflection on, the story of a pioneering scientific mission, led by Adolphus Greely and funded by the U.S. Army, to the Arctic. In 1882, members of Greely's team established a world record for reaching farther north than any human being ever had before them; they also collected an extensive and unprecedented set of scientific observations. In recent years, the data that Greely and his 24 men collected have contributed key insights to scientists' understanding of climate change and global warming.
