SciGuides are a collection of thematically aligned lesson plans, simulations, and web-based resources for teachers to use with their students centered on standards-aligned science concepts.
This guide explores the physics of tides and currents, the applications of tides and currents knowledge to real-world situations, and information about the effects of tides and currents on climate, environment, and society. Using this guide, teachers of high school students will focus on using real-time tides and currents data. They will also explore salinity and tides, the effects of oil spills, and how climate change is related to tides and currents. The sites in this guide can be used to learn about tides and currents through text and multimedia simulations. Teachers can read about scientists' work and develop inquiry activities that encourage students to explore tides and currents.
