In this online interactive geography quiz learning exercise, students respond to 7 identification questions regarding the Atlantic Ocean.
Students explore why the oceans do not freeze. They explain why they think the Atlantic Ocean does not freeze. Students are given background information about what they are doing. They create a hypothesis about what they believe occurs in each test tube.
Tenth graders study the major hurricanes of the Atlantic Ocean. In this weather lesson, 10th graders read an article and answer various questions. Students discuss their findings with their classmates.
What better way to learn about the watershed than to have your kids act it out themselves? This activity gets them moving and thinking as they simulate the Atlantic Ocean (could be adjusted geographically), estuaries, creeks, and rivers. Enhance the activity by misting them with water to represent a storm! Instead of just having them make water noises here, consider giving learners paper representing water. They pass it along, eventually ending in the ocean. Kids draw a watershed diagram and make predictions outside where water will end up once it rains.
First graders participate in a creative problem solving activity to help Ticky get to the Atlantic Ocean. They identify Ticky's problem, brainstorm ways to solve the problem, and develop a plan. They write the steps Ticky needs to take to get to Antarctica. The students make a class book and illustrate it with their own pictures.
Students build a map of the Atlantic Ocean floor and mark the different depths.  In this ocean floor lesson students identify parts of the ocean floor that they created and discuss patterns that they see.

Does your class know that all water that falls from a watershed ends up in the same large waterway? If they don't, they will after they complete this activity. They make a clay model of a landscape that looks similar to a topographical map with watersheds included. They pour water into their sheds and observe how it converges into a single larger body of water. They write what they observe on a data collection sheet, create their own definition of a watershed, and anser several prompts to show what they know.
By the end of this interdisciplinary lesson, youngsters will be able to describe the Gulf Stream ocean current and how it impacted the journey of the Mayflower ship. Reading, research, and the use of a really neat interactive website, "Museum Box," to build a display of the voyage.

Young scientists learn about each and then examine the impact of the Deepwater Horizon (BP) oil spill on the populations. A video, Internet links to sea turtle information pages, handouts, and all the support you need make this a top-notch resource for your life science, biology, or environmental science classes.

New Review Hurricane Katrina

Young scientists track Hurricane Katrina across the Atlantic Ocean as they learn about these destructive forces of nature. Provided with a table of data tracking the location and conditions of Katrina over a one week span, students plot its movement on the included map before answering a series of short-response questions.
Need a video to accompany your lecture on plate tectonics? Sal summarizes clues that certain parts of the world may at one time been connected. Use the video as part of one lecture, or break it up over several lessons.
