Glacial and periglacial landscapes

'Evidence from the deep freeze - under or near ice sheets'. In this Earthlearningidea, pupils use photographs to distinguish between landscapes formed by ice sheets or glaciers and those formed by periglacial processes.
This activity can be used to bridge the divide between science and geography in schools. It can be used to enhance lessons on the landscape features associated with an ‘Ice Age’. The characteristics of the deposits formed under or near an ice sheet or glacier may also be studied.
