Really liked this one. More for the fourth through sixth grade. Breaks down how what happens to the things that get dumped in the ocean. Begins with a scientist tracking where several new sneakers that washed up on the coast came from. Shows how you can track these things based on current, etc. Explains longitude and latitude. Plus has the scientist track cute bathtub toys, and who doesn't like rubber duckies. (well, maybe not wandering around in the ocean)

This one is for the budding scientist. Plus will give kids ideas of things they can track today (ie. the tsunami debris from Japan and when it will reach our shores).
