New novel - Everest by Gordon Korman!

The new novel that we are reading in class is an excellent adventure story called “Everest” written by Gordon Korman.  Here are a few resources (compliments of Larry Ferlazzo) to learn about Everest.  Please check them out!

National Geographic has a nice introduction video to Mt. Everest (among several others).  Click here for the complete list. 

Here is a panorama taken from the summit.

Here’s a nice video that shows a typical climbing route and the importance of acclimatizing (going back and forth to get one’s body acclimated to the altitude):

If you find any more "cool" links. Let me know! I hope to add to this post as we read the books.
