In this activity, learners explore the different salinities of various sources of water by taste-testing.
In this activity, learners discover that as the salinity of water increases, the density increases as well. Learners prove this by attempting to float fresh eggs in saltwater and freshwater.
In this activity, learners investigate the different salinity levels of oceans, rivers and estuaries.
In this activity, learners discuss the different salinities of oceans, rivers and estuaries.
In this activity, learners explore how salt water freezes in comparison to fresh water.
In this activity, learners observe tide pool animals in a touch tank to consider how they survive.
Discover how the salt in soil affects plant growth with a few seeds, some cotton, and salt. In this hands-on activity, you will plant seeds in 2 different kinds of soil, containing more or less salt.
Learners create three solutions with different levels of salinity. They compare the density of these solutions by coloring them and layering them in a clear plastic cup and in a soda bottle.
In this activity, learners observe how salinity affects the freezing point of water by making and enjoying ice cream.
In this quick activity, learners observe how salinity and temperature affect the density of water, to better understand the Great Ocean Conveyor.
An estuary is a body of water that is created when freshwater from rivers and streams flows into the saltwater of an ocean.
In this data collection activity about crabs, learners use data from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) trawl survey to determine the areas of the Chesapeake Bay that are being used by bl
In this group activity, learners will explore the characteristics, functions and uniqueness of the mangrove tree.
In this activity, learners explore the concept of density-driven currents (thermohaline circulation) and how these currents are affected by climate change.
In the wild, small crustaceans known as brine shrimp live in marine habitats such as saltwater lakes.
April showers bring May flowers, but what do coastal storms bring?
"What's in the Water" lets participants use tools to solve the mystery- what chemicals and compounds are in a sample of water?
