Yesterday we started mapping the deep ocean currents and it was pretty fun knowing how most of the currents move and how they are many powerful currents.  We learned hurricanes can be caused by how the climate is unstable or not, and strong winds make hurricanes that hit tropical areas.  There is also warm and cold waters, depending on where it is, like there can be very warm water near the equator like the South East middle of the Pacific Ocean near Venezuela.  We learned a lot about maps and think that it is very important since the ocean is quite mysterious and is a big proportion of the water we have on Earth.

Here are some pictures of deep ocean currents and gyres:
