I have to admit to being a bit of a rubber duck fan – I mean who isn’t…?
Anyway, I came across this interesting map that shows some of the locations that 29, 000 rubber ducks ended up after they escaped (well fell off!) a cargo ship in January 1992.
What a fantastic context for teaching about ocean currents and also a good opportunity to create a geographical mystery. After a bit of Googleing I found out that the story of these little fellas is quite well documented over on rubaduck.com (there really is a website for everything!) and a 2007 article written for the Daily Mail Online.
Anyone already developed a resource on this?
