Ocean Habitats and Resources

This week students will continue looking under the ocean to observe symbiotic relationships of animals in the neritic zone, such as coral reefs. We will then explore the water column as we we look at the areas in the open ocean and the deep. Here students will be able to join concepts from the plate tectonics unit and observe how the mid-ocean ridge’s thermal vents create oasis in the deep for life. I will be excited to start our conversations about ocean resources and sustainability after our videos and discussions.
