Expérimenter l’étranglement causé par les déchets marins
Target Group: Middle School
Subject: Plastics & Trash
Ocean Literacy Principle: 6
How does it feel to be trapped? Students get several rubber bands wrapped around their fingers. They try to free their hand without using their thumb or other hand. Marine animals trapped in for instance a fishing net experience the same problem.
Repeat the experiment with a rope or inner tire of a bicycle. You can find the activity on page 47 of the Educator's Guide.
