What creates ocean waves? Through exploration, students learn that moving air, or wind,
often causes waves. Students use their breath, straws and battery-powered fans to
experiment with wind strength and create waves in a model ocean. They then predict and
test the effect of waves on a rocky shore habitat and animals.
