The book provides the teacher with hands-on activities, experiments, drawings, and worksheet exercises that deal with such subjects as: (1) the topography of the sea; (2) ocean currents; (3) finding places by means of latitude and longitude; (4) salt from seawater; (5) ions in seawater; (6) a test for the chloride ion; (7) waves; (8) how depth affects water pressure; (9) making drift bottles and secchi discs; (10) measuring ocean depths and speed; (11) nautical terms; (12) icebergs; (13) the Titanic's message in radio code; (14) sailor's jargon; (15) endangered species of the sea; and (16) careers in oceanography. Included is a student certificate for being involved in the oceanography activities, reproducible handouts and quizzes, and an answer key. (TW)
