A glacier is a thick mass of ice that covers a large area of land. Around ten percent of the world's land area is covered by glaciers.
This web search is designed to give students factual information about all of the types of glaciers and the effect they have on the land they cover. During the search they use a variety of strategies and skills that will build their strengths in reading as well as their experience using the internet.
