"Ducks in the Flow, Where Did They Go?" represents a fusion of language, arts and science. Offering both a story of discovery and factual science content, this hybrid storybook/textbook promotes literacy on several fronts: ocean principles, general science, and language/arts. A step up from the average text or reference book, "Ducks in the Flow" is based on the U.S. National Standards and the Principles of Ocean Literacy, while its associated activities are specifically designed to enable students to mimic the research and discoveries of the characters in the story. Go with the "flow" and discover the world of ocean currents. (Contains 1 table and 4 figures.)
