Name Date Main Idea & Details: Icebergs Read the text. Then, complete the graphic organizer and paragraph frame that follow. An iceberg is a large piece of ice that is formed from fresh water. They are found floating in very cold oceans, seas, or lakes. Icebergs come in many shapes and sizes. Usually, only a small part of the iceberg is visible above the water. From above, it may look like an ice mountain. However, most of the iceberg is hidden underwater. Icebergs form when large chunks break off of glaciers or ice shelves in very cold regions, like Antarctica. The icebergs travel with ocean currents. When icebergs float into warmer water, they begin to melt and break apart.
