This Classifying Deep-sea Organisms lesson plan also includes:
Give each group a set of the included deep-sea organism cards and have them sort the cards based on different characteristics. The link for the cards takes you to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute website where you will find PowerPoint slides of the cards to use when discussing what each group discovered. Bring in a basket of laundry and ask children to sort the clothes into categories as a preparation for this activity. They could sort by color, by season of wear, part of the body worn on, etc.
