Program Description
In this natural history program, students will take a journey with Dr. Zooki, an eccentric scientist, as we examine the geological effects of the Ice Age on present-day Ohio from 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 trip through time.

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.
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.

Portions of the following content standards may be covered over the course of the program...

National Standards Connections
NCTE- ELA K-12.7 Students conduct research on issues and interests by generating ideas and questions, and by posing problems. They gather, evaluate, and synthesize data from a variety of sources (e.g., print and non-print texts, artifacts, people) to communicate their discoveries in ways that suit their purpose and audience.
NCTE- ELA K-12.8 Students use a variety of technological and information resources (e.g., libraries, databases, computer networks, video) to gather and synthesize information and to create and communicate knowledge.
