How is the Arctic changing?

This unit investigates one of the ways the Arctic is changing as a result of global warming. The sea level rise investigation demonstrates how the melting of different types of ice in the Arctic will affect sea level rise.

This investigation is taken from Digital Explorer Frozen Oceans: Mission 5 How is the Arctic changing? The accompanying presentation can be used alongside this investigation (slides 1 to 22) to highlight how the Arctic ice is changing. The other demonstrations can also be used for older children, extending into the key stage 3/4 curriculum.
