In this lesson developed by the Arctic Eider Society, students learn about the information that scientists are able to obtain by taking samples of sea ice. They will then take on the role of modern climatologists investigating historical climates by reading and interpreting climate signature clues recorded in a model ice core sample.
1. Ice Core Samples
Using the resources, students learn about the data that can be extracted from ice core samples by scientists.
Students play the role of scientists in a simulation where they read data from a model ice core sample.
