  • (Step Three) Use this Atlantic Ship Map to location ships in the Western Atlantic Ocean that are possible candidates for use in Activity 2.  Record as many Ship ID Codes as you can on the "handout".
    • NOTE: You need to find a ship that is headed west towards the United States.  The "handout" will provide instructions on how to review the search results to find a ship that will be appropriate for this activity.
  • (Step Five) Search the ships using the Ship ID Code in this text table
    • NOTE: Make sure that the ships that you select from the list have Longitude coordinates between 35 Degrees West and 85 Degrees West and Latitude coordinates between 15 Degrees North and 50 Degrees North.
  • If none of the ships that you recorded ID Codes for are headed west towards the United States you should wait 3-4 hours and then repeat these steps as new ships will likely become available.
