Walking on Frozen Ground

Project:     Arctic Climate Modeling Program (ACMP)
Subject:Atmospheric Sciences, Snow, Ice & Permafrost

In this lesson, students will meet a local Elder who visits the classroom to share information on permafrost in the local area. (Note: This activity is repeated in the Level III-IV lesson “Tour of the Frozen Ground” and Level V-VI lesson “Uses of Permafrost.” If other teachers in the school are using the ACMP curriculum, they may wish to collaborate on this activity.)
