You can’t go swimming in these rivers! Let Tim and Moby introduce you to the mysteries of slow-moving ice rivers called glaciers. You’ll learn about the conditions needed for glaciers to form and the drastic ways in which glaciers can reshape a landscape. Find out about the two different kinds of glaciers and where on Earth each can be found — here’s a hint: they’re not just in Antarctica! Brrr — It’s getting cold in here!
In this lesson plan, which is adaptable for grades K-8, students use BrainPOP resources to investigate the different types of erosion: gravitational, wind, and glacial. Students will learn the difference between weathering and erosion and work cooperatively to identify different examples of erosion. This lesson plan is aligned to Common Core State Standards.
