Description:

Embark on a journey through the frozen landscapes with this Glaciers Unit, a high-quality, no-prep resource that delves into the essential question: “What are distinguishing characteristics of glaciers?” This comprehensive unit provides an in-depth exploration of the unique features and processes that define these icy giants.

 

In this engaging unit, students gain a profound understanding of how glaciers form, the various types of glaciers including valley and continental glaciers, and the erosive impact glaciers have on their surroundings. The curriculum introduces students to a rich vocabulary, including terms like striations, grooves, till, erratics, moraines, kettles, drumlins, arete, cirque, eskers, and outwash. Through hands-on activities and insightful lessons, students will master the identification and comprehension of glacier components.

 

The Glaciers Unit not only equips learners with the knowledge to distinguish the characteristics of glaciers but also fosters a deep appreciation for the geological forces that shape our planet’s dynamic landscapes.
