A mobile app to learn about glaciers across the world.
Students will search for glacier-related information based on name, country, and other filters. They can also play a card game to test their glacier knowledge.
Use this tool to help your students find answers to:
- What is the size and elevation of some glaciers in Asia?
- Describe the current “health” status of glaciers in Europe.
- How do glaciers provide evidence of climate change?
