Alaska SeaLife Center: Virtual Field Trip - "Meltdown"

Want to communicate changes of Arctic sea ice extent with a younger audience? Check out the virtual fieldtrip “Meltdown,” developed by the Alaska SeaLife Center. “Meltdown” focuses on researchers studying how sea ice algae influence the Bering Sea ecosystem. Look at the background information tab and watch the video, “The Science of Sea Ice.” This virtual field trip was written for 5-8th graders, so you may find some helpful wording and framing to the issue of sea ice loss for that audience.
