Model Glaciers (Accessible Version)

Glacier National Park


This video is part of Work House: A Glacier National Park Science Education Program created by the Division of Interpretation & Education at Glacier National Park with the help of many people from the Blackfeet, Kootenai, Salish & Pend d'Oreille Culture Committees, and schools within the Blackfeet and Flathead Reservations. In this lesson, students use ice block models to mimic some of the processes that occurred when glacial ice covered much of the landscape-advancing and retreating, to create U-shaped valleys, moraines, and various other glacial features (open captions with audio description).

Additional Work House teaching materials are available on the park's education page.
