Young scholars discover that scuba diving is more than a sport. It's a science that operationally integrates physics, chemistry, physiology, and oceanography. They perform a simple experiment which simulates the air tanks used in scuba diving.
Students explore the science and sport of scuba diving. In this scuba diving lesson, students build Cartesian divers and observe their behavior under water pressure.
Students interview a guest scuba diver or study electronic resources to discover facts about scuba diving. They investigate the physics of scuba diving, the gaseous components of air, equipment used, and safety precautions taken by divers. They then create a collage using mixed media to reflect their knowledge of scuba diving.
Pupils explore oceanography by reading a nonfiction book in class. In this scuba diving lesson, students read the book For the Love of Scuba in class and analyze the techniques and equipment used in ocean exploration. Pupils answer study questions about the book and define scuba related vocabulary terms.
Learners explore various topics while discovering scuba diving as a science. In this scuba science lesson, students discuss the four oceans of the world, examine the water cycle and draw a diagram depicting this process. Learners also explore why ocean water is salty and conduct several experiments regarding floatation and pollution in ocean water.
Students explain various scientific laws used in SCUBA diving. For this theory based lesson, students examine and explain how temperature, density, and salinity relate to SCUBA diving using various scientific laws to engage their learning.
Students, with dive partners, explore coral reefs through scuba diving. They also explore radial symmetry and bilateral symmetry.
Students explore practical problems that are related to scuba diving.  In this oxygen instructional activity students complete a lab activity. 
Students define several laws of pressure and see how they relate to scuba diving.  In this ocean explorer lesson students answer questions and complete an activity. 
Students read the Adventure Team journal about scuba diving and discuss underwater plants and animals. They discover the meaning of water cycle, erosion,and examine how plants and animals can live in salt water. Students experiment with eggs dropped in glasses of water and salt water to observe how salt helps fish float. They also observe how light shining on plants causes oxygen bubbles to float to the surface.
Groups of young oceanographers get to use action figures to experiment with the property of buoyancy! This memorable lesson plan provides detailed background information, a link to the laboratory worksheet, and thorough instruction prior to the group activity. It can also be used with younger learners if you leave out the discussion about balancing the forces that act on objects in water.
Children research plant and animal components of marine ecosystem, visualize undersea life, and picture themselves wearing scuba-diving equipment needed to explore underwater. Students then create underwater scene in which they explore plant and animal life.
High schoolers research to answer questions related to deep sea diving. In this deep sea diving lesson, students answer questions on a worksheet using the Internet. They discuss pressure, gas laws, and the physiology of diving in the deep sea.
High schoolers are exposed to the physics and physiology of scuba diving, study the principals applied in the U.S. Navy Decompression tables and work out typical decompression problems.
Students collect data on the time of the ferry. In this algebra instructional activity, students use the data to predict a ferry schedule. They also compute the depth where oxygen would be needed when diving.
Students discover the wonders of coral reefs while listening to a book about them. In a Reading Rainbow video activity, they simulate a dive, check equipment and explore a reef. Role-playing as marine biologists, students uncover answers to various questions
In this swim bladders worksheet, students use a bowl, water, and balloons to make swim bladders, and answer short answer questions about them. Students answer 7 questions and interview someone who has been scuba diving.
Students explore Boyle's Law. In this Boyle's Law lesson, students complete problems involving Boyle's Law. They examine the effects of Boyle's Law upon the human body. Students use the Internet to complete a lab activity.
Young scholars study how buoyancy, pressure, and light can effect the work of underwater scientists.  In this marine science instructional activity students complete a lab that allows them to better understand how pressure varies with altitude and depth. 
In this reading comprehension worksheet, students respond to 4 short answer and essay questions based on the poem "Diving into the Wreck."
