Which creatures live on the ocean floor? In which zone? Depict life in either the sunlight, twilight, or midnight zone—and keep your science project Earth-friendly by recycling a box.
Salt water covers three quarters of the Earth’s surface. Although the ocean surface looks pretty much the same anywhere on the planet, what’s below the surface is as varied as life on land. Invite students working in small groups to investigate various ocean habitats on the planet. Organize a variety of text and electronic resources for students to view during the research.
Once research is complete, groups organize their information in preparation for presenting it to classmates. To accompany presentations, students will create a visual representing their learning.
Here’s one way to transform a recycled box into an ocean-floor habitat. Use Crayola Crayons and Washable Markers to decorate construction paper to cover the inside of the box.
With Crayola Metallic Colored Pencils, Crayons, and Markers, draw the creatures for the ocean box on construction paper. Cut out thread long enough to hold each one. Tape thread to the backs.
Students poke holes through the box so it can suspend creatures from the top. Thread the stringed figures through holes and tape thread in place. Cover the outside of the box with decorated construction paper.
Groups label the parts of the diorama and integrate it into their presentation on the life shown in the saltwater environment.
Provide time in the school day for group to present their new learning about salt water environments to classmates.
Create a 3-D braille chart simply with Crayola® School Glue, Markers and paper.
