James Cameron produced this great movie taking students imaginations to the bottom of the Atlantic to see the mid-ocean ridge, and chemosynthetic hydrothermal vent ecosystems - the movie even alludes students curiosity to the possibility of ocean-like seas on Europa. This movie is a must have I think, as it can be a great attention getter, or it can be used as a doorway into an extension activity where students study and compare and contrast photosynthetic vs chemosynthetic food webs and energy transfer. The anticipation guide will ensure that students follow along with the movie, and comes with a key.

This activity, with ahead DVD prep by the teacher, should take about 1 hour as students must first preview the facts before the movie. Check work as a class with markers, or collect and grade.

As far as standards, this activity can be applied to food webs and energy transfer (in Florida that's SC.912.L.17.9), biotic versus abiotic components (in Florida that's SC.912.L.17.7), or the features of the ocean floor (in Florida that's SC.912.E.6.5). I'm sure many others, but this is what I use this for when I have time.
