KSPS’s Sculpted by Floods tells the story of the ice age floods in the Pacific Northwest. It is a story of the earth's power, scientific discovery and human nature - one touted by enthusiasts as the greatest story left untold. During the last ice age, floods flowing with ten times the volume of all the world's current rivers combined inundated the Northwest. What they left behind was a unique landscape that citizens of the Pacific Northwest call home.
With these video clips and lesson activities, students will learn how floods create landforms and shape a region’s landscape, using the Missoula floods as a case study. Visit KSPS Education for additional educator resources.
