Students explore three ocean zones
*Photic Zone: Using microscopes, students identify live plankton species.
*Pelagic Zone: Students conduct a hands-on fish dissection discovering the adaptations needed to survive in this mid-ocean zone.
*Benthic Zone: Studying live intertidal animals, students learn how this bottom zone is interconnected with the photic zone.
Students use printmaking to create their own plankton print.
