Description:

In this two-part virtual field trip, students will explore permafrost, the effects that climate change has on current infrastructures built on it and other environmental impacts. The 2008 ATEEC Fellows Institute brought 18 environmental science community college and high school instructors to Alaska. They created virtual field trips using Google Earth. Part two of this activity will take your class to various glaciers in Alaska and around the world. Students will learn about the effects climate change has on these receding glaciers and discover what it means on a broader level. Materials include an excellent teacher's guide to help instructors implement this lesson in their classroom. This resource is free to download. Users must first create a login with ATEEC's website to access the file.
