Motion In The Ocean
In this activity, students will model the process of heat transfer by convection in Earth's oceans.
Real World Science Topics:
- An exploration of how water density is related to water temperature
- An exploration of how density differences cause convection in Earth's oceans
Students will gain an understanding of how temperature differences in ocean water cause convection currents.
