Product Description: If your kids are learning about plate boundaries, hydrothermal vents, chemosynthesis, ecosystems or life in the ocean, this is a GREAT video! There's even a twist of mystery involved: The unknown Paleodictyon nodosum - the creature that we know exists, we see where it lives (its niche is also an odd mystery) but have never seen the actual creature. Read about that mysterious creature briefly here. I bought the DVD, I highly recommend that - if you teach marine, this is a must have video. The video "Volcanoes of the Deep Sea" is also available on vimeo, free, here. Download the preview for this to read my brief synopsis of the video.

My only complaint with this video, is they refer to the hydrothermal vents as "volcanoes". I get it, that's a much more interesting and catchy word, but you might want to explain that to your kids prior to watching. I do use "hydrothermal vents" in the anticipation guide, and you will not hear that said in the video. I figure it's good, it'll make the kids think. ;-)

Use the 8 slide whole class PPT review to go over the material, so they can be sure they got it right but also it allows them to be exposed to the material a second time to enhance learning. The PPT is animated to allow you time to call on students, to ask questions.
