3D models of Mount Rainier (left) and Mount Fuji (right) compiled from satellite photographs.
Students will research the effects of glaciers on mountain landscapes. Using what they learn they will then view images of Mount Rainier and Mount Fuji topography to draw conclusions regarding the presence or absence of glaciers on each of the mountains.
7 - 12
Students will be able to:
Use images and print resources to research and explain the impact of glaciers on landscape
Analyze images for information and recognize patterns
Compare and contrast patterns observed at Mount Rainier with patterns observed at Mount Fuji
Summarize the results of their research to predict the presence or absence of glaciers on Mount Rainier and Mount Fuji
