Go with the Flow!

NASA’s Space Place website engages upper-elementary-aged children in space and Earth science through interactive games, hands-on activities, informative articles, and engaging short videos. Find material in both English and Spanish and resources for parents and teachers. For example, in the online game Go with the Flow!, children direct a submarine to uncover hidden treasure and learn about ocean currents and water dynamics. Accompanying the game is additional information on the basics about ocean currents, how salt and temperature play a major role in their development, and a video that shows the major ocean currents that flow around the globe. Supplement this mini-lesson with one of PLT’s activities to enrich the experience.
