The task

The Task

  • During your dive into the ocean, you will enter three ocean zones. Use the internet websites found on the Resources page to research each zone and the creatures that live there.

  • As part of your mission, you are required to keep a journal with a minimum of four entries. You will create one journal entry for each zone, detailing what you see around you. The fourth journal entry is for you to write about your favorite ocean creature. Be sure to include a picture.

  • Finally, you must create either a drawing, diorama, or 3D model of the ocean zones with at least 3 ocean creatures in each zone. You will give an oral presentation of this project to the International Ocean Explorer’s Club.


Process

Process

  • First go to resources page to find the websites for ocean zones. Read about the ocean zones.

  • Next, use the websites to read about the ocean creatures of each zone.

  • Then imagine you are diving through each ocean zone. What do you see around you? Create a journal entry that describes where you are and what you see. Do this for all three ocean zones.

  • Now, pick your favorite ocean creature and find out all you can about it. Your last journal entry will be a description of your favorite creature and a picture of it.

  • Next, use your journal to help you create a drawing, diorama, or 3D model of the ocean zones. You must have at least 3 creatures per zone.

  • Finally, you will use your project to help you make an oral presentation to the class about the ocean zones.
