Map that Habitat

Middle schoolers participate in an activity that replicates the creation of sea floor bathymetry by taking a simplified form of soundings in the classroom. They discuss sea floor mapping technologies, sonar, soundings, and remote sensing, conduct the activity, and identify what feature of the seafloor they have mapped and record it on a worksheet.
