This teaching box focuses on the concept that changes in sea level have occurred in the past, are occurring now, and will continue to occur. It provides an inquiry-based exploration of glacial, geologic, fossil, and isotopic lines of evidence for periodic melting of ice and resulting sea level rise. Students learn about the worldwide effects of sea level changes in the past and then use a study on topography and sea level to demonstrate their understanding of the impact of sea level change on flora, fauna, and human society. These activities have been presented in a way as to emphasize the process of science; how evidence is gathered and hypotheses are tested. Guided inquiry has been used throughout, and where possible, these materials attempt to replicate the discoveries of science that have led to our understanding of past, present, and future sea level change.
