Students


Hello students this page is for you! But before we begin, we want to remind you that "climbing can kill you", as Gary Neptune puts it so well. High Altitude Mountaineering, such as climbing Everest and these other 8000 meter peaks is an extremely dangerous activity, where people die every year. Frankly we cannot think of any more dangerous activity on earth!

Every year we received hundreds of e-mail questions from students. We have made the below lesson plans for you and your teachers! These will answers almost all of your questions. No we do not write the reports for you. 

Copyright: Yes is illegal to simply copy text from our web site or any other and put into your report. Any student caught doing so, should be given a F by their teacher. No, you can not take pictures from our site or any other and make your own web site. Companies like  www.corbis.com will sell you the right to use a picture. Teachers, please spend some time with your students on Copyright law. Ok, enough of that!

Welcome to the educational link of EverestNews.com. Kevin Cherilla, base camp manager of the NFB 2001 Everest Expedition and 7th and 8th grade physical education teacher from Phoenix, Arizona, is the primary author of these plans. His duties as base camp manager was performing daily correspondence with students and adults around the world and sharing thoughts and curriculum information.

Kevin put together many lesson plans for all of you to use in the classroom and to find out more about mountaineering and the people and country of Nepal. These lesson plans are a culmination of his ideas along with input from the staff at EverestNews.com, and other educators from around the country. Please utilize the lessons in your own creative way and modify them according to the academic levels of your students.
