Reviewer Comments:

In this short activity, upper level students are lead through an investigation of a variety of images, mostly from NASA and the USGS site. In answering the questions, students are asked to make observations and are challenged to draw conclusions from this real-life data regarding the changes in the world’s ice cover.
