Lesson Planet

Adapting Under Pressure

For Teachers 5th - 9th
Via the National Weather Service website, your science class examines five layers of the ocean. They discuss James Cameron's submersible expedition to the deepest trench and think about what animals might live there. In groups, they...
Lesson Planet

Find a Vent

For Students 6th - 12th Standards
With so much ocean floor to explore, how do scientists find hydrothermal vents and other landforms? A simulation encourages scholars to measure temperatures at 200 meters above the sea floor, select areas to drop temperature probes, and...
Lesson Planet

Exploring Properties of Matter with Submersibles

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Middle schoolers explore the relationships between mass, volume, density, and buoyancy. They manipulate various materials to construct a submersible "vehicle" for deep-sea research.
