Program Description   In this natural history-themed program, students will take a journey with Dr. Zooki, an eccentric scientist, to explore and examine the geological effects of the Ice Age thousands of years ago. Students will discover the cause-and-effect relationship of three natural landforms that resulted from the glaciers and the sequence of their creation. Students will also use their mapping and navigation skills to guide their way on their journey.
Program Format   1. A short introduction is viewed.
2. Students meet Dr. Zooki.
3. Dr. Zooki reviews vocabulary and concepts.
4. Dr. Zooki takes the students on a virtual trip to 3 sites that were created by glaciers.
5. Students will look for proof of glaciers at the three sites.
6. A review of the concepts and terms will happen at the end of the program.
7. Students will be encouraged to write Dr. Zooki.
Objectives   After participating in this program, students will be able to define key terms pertaining to glaciers and glaciation, describe the formation process of glaciers, and explain several ways in which glaciers erode land. Students will also have a better understanding of glacial deposition and how to recognize the features of glacial erosion and deposition on landscapes.
