Why Lesson Planet?
Give science learners nine questions about the biogeography of hydrothermal vents and turn them loose to research this fascinating habitat. Working in cooperative groups, they prepare a report that addresses each of the questions. A plethora of resource links are included for groups to glean information from! Versatile in subject matter, this lesson can be used in a biology when exploring habitats, or in earth science when covering plate tectonics or ocean-bottom features.
