How did the Great Lakes form?

Answer

The Great Lakes are Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario. They were formed as the result of repeated advancing and receding glaciers as earth moved in and out of ice ages. The advancing ice carved the Earth's crust out and then as the ice receded, the gully filled with water and made the lakes.
