Glaciers and Our Climate

Apply and develop your knowledge of climate change in the context of glaciers. Using digital and hands-on activities pupils will investigate how glaciers and climate change are inextricably linked. Pupils will consider how glaciers help us understand the climate of the past - and by discovering more about the climate emergency - the long-term impacts of glacial retreat on our planet.
