|Investigative Question or Issue: What effects did glaciers have on the Adirondack Mountains?|
This challenge was written for 4th graders - it can easily be adapted to higher grade levels.
Working cooperatively in a small group of 4 students, and using the ideas illustrated on your "What three things did glaciers do?" concept map (Teacher version, Blank version), you will demonstrate the effects of glaciers in the sandbox. Then you will draw a picture of the mountains, both before and after the glaciers were there.
Work cooperatively, staying on task.
Create a scene that shows the high, pointed, young Adirondack Mountains from ancient times.
Use hands to move as glaciers, staying on the land and moving north to south.
Each student demonstrates and explains one of the following, using "glacier hands":
Illustrate the ancient Adirondack Mountains with high, pointed tops and the present Adirondack Mountains with lower, rounded, eroded tops.
