As we paddle, we encounter floating trash from time to time. Most often we see plastic bags, foam cups, plastic bottles and balloons. It can be disappointing to see these things out on the water and they can be harmful to animals. Sometimes we see things that are too big to fit in our kayaks (like a mini refrigerator) or things that are kind of gross and stinky, covered in barnacles or seaweed. What do you think we should do when we encounter trash floating in the ocean or washed up on beaches? Should we try to collect it or leave it alone? Should we list what we see in Daily Data? Maybe you can think of some other options for us. What should we do? What do you do if you see litter in your neighborhood?
Answer from last week's Dave's Dilemma
Students has many good suggestions for last week's Dave's Dilemma about how to thank people who help us out along the way.
· Pick wildflowers or find special nature gifts for people – like maybe special or shiny rocks
· Give them Fennel’s autograph!!
· Make thank you cards – you could even do this on your computer
· Teach them something in return – like how to dogsled or how to kayak
· Make them a nature piece of artwork – like a snow sculpture or one out of rocks
· You can take pictures of the people and put them on the website as a way to say thanks,
· Send them a postcard from the next state as a thank you note
· If you find cool items on the beach like shells, you could give the items as gifts to thank people.
