Buoys
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     How do buoys work? They float.
 
2     There are many different kinds of buoys, and each one does a different job. There are buoys that aid in travel, commerce, weather, military operations, and other activities. Each one works in a different way, but the one thing that they all have in common is that buoys float.
