CONSTRUCTION OF MODEL GLACIER (pdf). This is a learning activity taken out from the book “Antarctica’s Climate Secrets” by LuAnn Dahlmann (the English version can be downloaded here for free). The students use simple materials to build a model of a glacier which includes glacial sediment.

INTERACTIVE SIMULATION OF A GLACIER (direct link to the English version. File to be downloaded and started). The simulation allows students to adjust temperature and mountain snowfall to see the glacier grow and shrink. It also allows the use of scientific tools to measure velocity, thickness and glacial mass balance.
A working sheet (in English) is also available, which gives students the opportunity to correctly understand the animation and consider changes occurring in the model.
