Teaching Tips

Could be used as in a lesson or unit on Antarctica and climate change.

Effective brief framing tool for use as an introduction to a unit on paleoclimatology or "how do scientists know what they know?" The video does not delve into details of paleoclimatology.

Teachers could also use this video to have a discussion about young women in climate science.

Progression of time that is captured in the ice cores should be clarified by the educator.
