Turning the Tide on Trash: A Learning Guide on Marine Debris is an interdisciplinary guide designed to provide maximum flexibility in the classroom. The guide can be used as a stand alone teaching tool, or individual activities may be used to supplement work in other subject areas. The learning guide opens with an exercise, "Let's Talk Trash: a Litter Survey," that encourages students to think about their own behaviors and attitudes with respect to litter. This survey provides a basis for students to understand their contribution to the marine debris problem and will help teachers draw students into activities presented later in the guide that deal with the sources and effects of marine debris.
