The Sea-Level Story
This resource explores how and why sea levels have varied over the last tens of thousands of years, and the effects this had both at the time and today. It covers topics such as glaciation, global warming and its potential consequences, and isostasy and its effects. The resource includes a main lesson plan, a PowerPoint presentation on on Isostatic Uplift, printable photographs and questions, on both a Word document and PowerPoint, a student workbook, and both a base timline and the components to stick on to illustrate the geological timescales.

The course is aimed at Scottish CfE Third and Fourth level as a part of the Broad General Education, and can be used as part of Geography teaching, with strong applications in glaciation work, geology work, and as an illustration when discussing the potential impacts of global warming.
