Summary:The constant pushing of molecules into each other if the reason we feel wind. As one molecule bumps into another, it transfers energy into the next molecule. This constant pushing on the oceans surface also transfers energy to the water. This energy transfer is responsible for the motion of the world's ocean currents. Students will make their own ocean currents using straws and black pepper.
