9 - The Antarctic treaty

All agreed?

Without an international agreement like the Antarctic Treaty there would be a free-for-all in Antarctica – anybody could do or take what they want.

In groups, come up with a list of five rules that you agree are the bare minimum for any Treaty that decides what goes on in Antarctica.

Use this word bank for useful words to include in your five rules:

Ban | Quota | Limit | Introduce | Prohibit | Prevent | Protect | Reduce | Improve | Enhance | Monitor
