You think it's
little, guess again. Do you know there are icebergs on
land and in water? Icebergs are made by glaciers
breaking, and chunks going to the sea. The chunks turn
blue, green, and white. Icebergs can be very huge or
very small. A big iceberg can be more than 1 million
tons! In 1956 there was an iceberg as big as Belgium.
Another big one in 1987 was bigger than Rhode Island.
Another big iceberg was 183 miles long. It broke up in
2000. Icebergs can flip over, which causes giant
waves. Most of an iceberg is under water, but only the
tip sticks up. On the top it can stick straight up.
But on the bottom it can be far to one side, which can
be horrible for boaters. Because of an iceberg, the
Titanic met its terrible fate.
