It can be difficult to find fun, hands on activities to use when teaching climate. Include ice cores in your climate and geologic time unit to increase engagement!
1. A 25 slide PowerPoint lesson on glaciers and ice cores. It teaches students how and where ice cores are drilled, how they are analyzed, and what we can learn from them. Includes 2 video links on YouTube. Key vocabulary: Glaciers, ice cores, glaciologist, proxy record, isotopes, albedo effect.
2. An ice core lab (2 page student worksheet and 3 pages of teacher directions, tips, and answer key). FYI- this lab will take a few days to prepare, so plan early!
Included in your purchase is both the editable PowerPoint and lab, along with a digital Google slide version.
