Learners explore ocean vessels that drill the ocean floor. In this ocean drilling lesson, students watch videos about drilling the ocean floor and discuss. Learners get into groups, go outside and use string to mark off the amount of space the drilling vessel would take up.
High schoolers examine the components of a sonar system. In this physical science lesson students explain how multibeam and sidescan sonar systems are useful to ocean explorers. High schoolers simulate sonar operations in an activity using a motion detector and a graphing calculator.
Learners examine the different types of luminescence in deep sea organisms. In this bioluminescence lesson, students investigate how color and light aide deep ocean organisms by describing the characteristics of the habitat and completing a study guide. They define the differences in chemiluminescence, bioluminescence, fluorescence, and phosphorescence before telling how each is helpful to deep sea organisms.
Students discover the methods scientists use to investigate Oceanic habitats. In this oceanography lesson, students utilize the Internet to identify deep sea submersibles and how they help scientists study the Charleston Bump. Students create a sea organism experiment by sampling different cakes and identifying what makes them each unique.
