There is a whole world to explore when you are submerged under the Hawaiian sea. Learners in grades five through eight explore Hawaiian volcanoes, the coral reefs, submarine technologies, and the deep sea habitats. They use a bathymetric data sheet to discuss how maps are made and modeled. Then, they construct three-dimensional models of the Loihi Volcano and use their models to write detailed descriptions and map the area. This leads into a discussion of how underwater or deep-sea habitats are mapped around the globe.
