A cool way to teach glaciers!

Show how glaciers work with our dynamic model. 

Your students will find glaciers easy to understand with our exciting model. They first make their model glacier using the colourful parts and then use it to look at the structure of a glacial system.

By manipulating use their moveable blocks of glacial ice they will see how dynamic equilibrium works, inputs (snow fall & avalanche) and outputs (melting, evaporation, sublimation) into the glacial system, how glaciers advance and retreat, how glaciers move (basal sliding & internal flow) and glacial transportation.
