Curious About Ice Age

By Sparking Children’s Thinkibility
Grades 2nd, 3rd, 4th, Homeschool

I hope you are ready to dive into the fascinating times on Earth when ice sheets and glacier ice expanded to cover large areas of land. There have been several ice ages when the ice on the polar caps expanded due to an overall lowering of the Earth’s temperatures. This booklet helps students to explore what the Earth looked during the latest ice age.

Young children should be encouraged to be curious and to ask questions. Noticing things and be allowed to ponder help them to develop their understanding of history. By challenging their thinking, they recognise that even simple questions can be answered in different ways. The principal focus of creative learning during the early years is to enable students to ask questions, explore options and generate ideas. Creative learning involves to imaginatively make new and innovative connections.
