Between 18,000 and 15,000 years ago a series of cataclysmic floods sculpted some of the most dramatic landscapes in the country. The flood path from Montana to the Pacific Ocean reveals evidence of the greatest floods known to the world, as the great ice sheets of the Northwest melted into gigantic glacial lakes in western Montana. This warming world was home to epic megafauna that still enchant the modern imagination. Mammoth, giant sloth, camels, and horses lived alongside contemporary animals such as elk and rabbit. Though close in time, this period of Earth history was fascinatingly different from the modern age.The Terra Tempo: Ice Age Cataclysm! Lesson Plan assists teachers in integrating the material from the story into the classroom. Through the story children learn about the astronomy of 15,000 years ago, the animals of the Pleistocene, the geography of the Pacific Northwest, the Chinook Jargon, the science behind the discover of the Missoula Floods, and more! Developed in conjunction with Danae Hutson.
