Rastrear los desechos marinos
Target Group: Middle School
Ocean Literacy Principle: 6
How does marine litter end up in the ocean? Students discuss this problem looking at different sources.
They start with a fictional coastal town, continue with a map of their own area and look at the problem on a global scale using the 'Rubber duck story'. They finally discuss how the problem could have been prevented in the first place. You can find the activity on page 21 of the Educator's Guide.
Computer, projector, downloaded map of the area. Alternatively, you can draw the map of the area and the fictional town on the blackboard.
