Description:

This activity (located on page 3 of the PDF) is a full inquiry investigation about the different causes of glacial melt. Groups of learners will design their own experiment using frozen "glaciers", bricks and different energy sources (fans, and lights) to test how different conditions affect the rate of melting. The results might be surprising. Relates to linked video, DragonflyTV GPS: Glaciers.
