Lesson Plan

Ocean Exploration

This Ocean Exploration lesson plan also includes:

Dora, Dora, Dora, Dora, Dora! This may be your little ones' best guess as to what it's like to be an explorer! Give them a deeper understanding with this compact examination. A four-minute video introduces them to Robert Ballard, the oceanographer most known for finding the sunken Titanic and hydrothermal vents. Afterward, divide the class into groups and give them each a portion of the world map (included). They draw what they think might be found in their parts of the ocean and then put their section together with the rest of the class. More than anything, this instructional activity can be used to whet learners' appetites for an oceanography unit.
