Identifying Sea Ice

Project:     Arctic Climate Modeling Program (ACMP)
Subject:Snow, Ice & Permafrost
Theme:Sea Ice Dynamics

In this lesson, students will use the Yupik Sea Ice Dictionary and interview local Elders and hunters to learn local native language terms for different kinds of marine ice. (Note: students in Savoonga and Gambell can find local terms for sea ice in the dictionary, and may not need to interview community members to determine these terms.)
