Ocean currents

Here's a video of an easy experiment you can try at home to simulate ocean currents. You only need a 9 x 13, some food coloring, ice in a zip-top bag, water, and a lamp.

This short video doesn't mention our content this week, but it does give some insight on ocean currents.

Question #4 on this page gives a great visual diagram for inquisitive kids.

And here's a very comprehensive site on ocean currents for older students.
