Product Description
Ocean Currents - How do they work? and why should we care?

Student Learning Goals:
** I can demonstrate how thermal energy causes movement in the atmosphere and in ocean currents.
** I can relate how the density and temperature of a material affect current movement.
** I can relate changes in density to the movement of the atmosphere and ocean currents.
** I can demonstrate how a current can form through thermal energy transfer in the ocean and in the atmosphere.
** I can explain that the Jet Stream is an atmospheric current and that the Gulf Stream is an oceanic current.
** I can link ocean currents to the factors of thermal energy, water density, mineral content, ocean topography, and Earth’s rotation.

Key Terms:
** Eddy
** Upwelling
** Downwelling
** Surface Currents
** Deep Water Currents
** Gyres
** Topography
