The extinction of the Ice Age megafauna is a topic lively debated amongst Cenozoic scholars. In this program, students will learn about the potential for extinction to be caused by climate shift, overhunting by humans, and disease. The evidence for and against each theory will be discussed. Students will see how early humans used a variety of stone tools to hunt and process mammoths. Lastly, using the rock record students will see how the Earth has shifted past climates and how that could have affected these animals.

Program duration is 30 to 40 minutes.
