Mapping the Unknown

Students explain how early maps of the ocean bottom were made. They describe and execute a method for producing a low-resolution map of a surface that cannot be seen or touched. Students analyze the data from a mapping activity and identify areas of interest. They simulate "soundings" to visualize and map an unknown object using a Mystery Box, cardboard box with a shoe or some other familiar object attached to the inside bottom.
