Plastic Waters

Explore the way plastic pollution moves through our oceans by creating a mini-ocean right here at Sea Life Arizona! In this lab students will learn and practice data collecting skills by recording what happens to plastics as they enter a marine habitat and what happens to the animals that call those habitats home. This lesson helps strengthen graph making skills while being hands on, engaging and wet!
