The temperature of the water
always effects the air above it. If
the water is warm the air
temperature gets warmer.
Example: The Gulf Streamâ€™s
water is warm. When the water
washes up on Englandâ€™s shore, it
brings warm, muggy weather to
England.
Gyres are many
ocean currents
rotating in a
system. There
are 5 main
ocean gyres.

The Gulf Stream is an ocean
current that runs from
Florida, up to Canada, then
across the Atlantic to
England. It is a warm current
and home to many sea
creatures such as sharks,
whales, and many fish. The
arrows are the Gulf Stream
(except it keeps going to
England).

The Gulf Stream System is a mix of different ocean currents.

Put a message in an enclosed bottle that
floats. Write your email or some way for
the person- if someone finds it- to get in
contact with you. If you never get a note
back that someone found your message,
then you are very unlucky. It will be
cool to see where it goes!
Stop putting our
trash in the
oceans. People
and animals all
over the world
are finding them.
This trash is
killing animals
worldwide!
Go put your
trash in the
appropriate
spot- a trash
can. Also recycle
