Weather in Alaska

Would use these two clips as a hook in a larger lesson about the impacts of weather in Alaska.

First clip shows how a change in weather pattern caused a lack of snow in Anchorage, and also caused the Iditarod to be moved to Fairbanks, AK.

Second clip shows students  from the University of Alaska in Fairbanks studying the effects of methane released from frozen/thawing lakes.
