We have now seen a few examples of ice on land. You should now know and be able to explain the following terms:
- Ice sheet
- Ice cap
- Ice age and interglacial
We have also looked into where you can find glaciers, ice caps and ice sheets.
– Why do you think we have periods with ice ages and periods with less ice (interglacials)?
– Do you know how many people live in Greenland?
– Does anybody live in Antarctica?
– Have you ever been on a glacier?
Exercise: How big is the Greenland ice sheet?
