One of the best ways to engage students is by providing rich and meaningful learning experiences. In this brief 30-minute hands-on experience I analyze a particular youtube video to investigate whether it is true or not. Then, we explore how energy and matter cycles affect the movement of ocean currents and how those currents can distribute pollution around the globe. Hopefully, this sparks some ideas you can integrate into your science classroom this year!
