Glaciers
« on: July 08, 2015, 09:27:25 AM »
Morning- I am currently out of my comfort zone and trying to put together a SOW on Glaciers having not taught or really covered it myself I am finding it a nightmare what to include, what is relevant matching it to the ability. Can any of you wonderful people out there point me to where there are some resources online/SOW?

Thank you for helping :-)

I was going to ask about this a few weeks ago, not for me but for a friend. Serious, I am leaving and being a good person so helping re-write SOW ready for next year. Our focus is more Glaciated landscapes, I think it might lean towards the dull side of the Geography teaching so was looking for ways to liven it up.

Someone has once mentioned to me they built a glacier in lessons to show how they move, you could look into doing this although I am not sure how this works. Cornflour has been mentioned on a science forum I read, has anyone done something like this?

From my research on lesson so far- corn flower, water and a small rock/pebble placed in a  piece of gutter raised up via a stack of books will demonstrate glacier movement. :-)

Ok, I imagined something more grand taking place over a longer period of time

Hi you should find our scheme of work on KS3 Glaciation useful. 

Other new units on Russia (including soils), natural resources & coasts (including African and Middle Eastern coasts) also available.   

All (and much more too) through this link:

best wishes

Glaciers dull??? I LOVE glaciers and everything glacial!! Still remember showing my (Middlesbrough) students a photo of a glacier with moraine strips and asking them what it was, to get the most popular reply "some sort of motorway". Depends on your clientele, obviously, but for many it is a chance to show them things beyond their 'everyday' - a real "awe and wonder" opportunity. And unless you are in London or Southern England, where you are was covered in 1km+ of ice as recently as 15,000 years ago (depending on where you are) - which, compared to dinosaur extinction 65Mya or age of Earth at 4,600Mya, is basically yesterday [another awe and wonder opportunity].

Put on a timeline with building of the pyramids etc and they'll realise just how recently this country was glaciated!

This is a great resource for introducing glaciers and the importance of ice http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1cys2c_earth-the-power-of-the-planet-3-of-5-ice_tv
