Hydrometer and water temp centigrade thermometer.

hiya, I am trying to get my hands on a hydrometer which would be suitable for testing salinity in a coastal survey project I am doing with my kids this term

I THINK that an aquarium hydrometer would be suitable (ie, one designed to test salinity levels for aquarium fish) for our purposes. This survey is very basic, and if they get an understanding of how a hydrometer works and that salinity levels vary then this is great. Exact scientific data is not our aim at this stage. 

we are also after a centigrade thermometer suitable for testing water temperature. 

i can sent photos of the type of item I am looking for...should this help. 

attached pic is of thermometor.
