A highland landscape is described before, during and after glaciation. Around 10,000 years ago, Scotland was in the grip of an ice age with massive ice sheets and glaciers covering the landscape. These transformed a landscape formed by rivers to a glaciated landscape with sharper, deeper and more dramatic features.

Can be used to outline the differences between a pre-glacial and post-glacial landscape. This could be done in the form of a comparative table, maybe partly completed for the students, or before and after diagrams (possible screen shots of the diagrams shown in the video) which require labels adding. Points to cover could be size of valleys, shape of valleys, steepness of slopes, main erosional processes.
