The research which is currently being done regarding the ice record of Mount Logan is fascinating and extremely engaging for students. It is important Canadian research contributing to our understanding of global historical climate, and ultimately to our understanding of our current experience of climate change. The six lessons have been prepared to follow and build upon one another, and should be used in order for fullest understanding. They start with understanding terms and processes, move through the water cycle and weather/climate, to ice core research and what it reveals about the past and the present. There is also a final quiz included with the unit.
