The Gulf Stream Voyage DLESE Reviewed Collection
The Gulf Stream Voyage is an online multidisciplinary project which utilizes both real time data and primary source materials to help guide students to discover the science and history of the Gulf Stream. Students will investigate this great ocean current, how it affects the Atlantic Ocean and some of mankind's experiences dealing with it. This voyage includes activities for marine science, earth science, chemistry, physics, biology, math, history and language arts. All may be easily used in today's technology enhanced classroom including access to real time ocean data, atmospheric data and historical primary source materials.
