2. Summary of Our Project
Welcome to our website of the “Ice Age”! In this website, you can get the information about “Past Ice Age”, “Future Ice Age”, and the current statement. “Past Ice Age” will show you what periods of ice age had happened before and the environments about the ice ages. “Future Ice Age” will show you if it is possible to have ice age in the after-human-life and if it is possible, what’s the causes and when will it happened? Also, you can search the pictures about “glaciers”. There are many kinds of glaciers, such as alpine glaciers and tidewater glaciers. We purposely make the website emerge in a cuter mode in order to show the knowledge object in a more interesting way, so that people won’t be too bored about these informations.

Using the internet to learn allow us to be in control of what we want to learn. In doing so, we found that we had learned about things that teacher would not teach us in a traditional class, like personal opinions that are out there on the internet that has not been accepted by the scientific community.
