Resource Description

Climate change is warming the planet and causing permafrost, glaciers, and mountain-top ice patches to melt. As a result, remarkable artifacts are being uncovered, revealing key information about past civilizations. The discovery and analysis of these tools, clothing, and even human bodies are teaching scientists about the past, and this resource supports readers’ understanding with thorough explanations and engaging visual elements. Supporting the Social Studies and Science curricula in Grade 5, 7, and 8, this resource provides abundant information and lends itself as a teacher read-aloud to broach the subject of climate change or to provide a timeline for the past. In the classroom, the resource can be used for individual or group work to further research a topic, and the book’s format allows for inquiry-based connections and personal learning.
