    Why would people practice Ice Harvesting?

    What would they do with all that ice?

    Do they still do it today, why or why not?

    How would Ice Harvesting link to our next theme study on water?

    Looking at the pictures, come up with 
    sequence of the harvesting the ice by using a Thinking Map. 

    Option 2:
