Product Description
This lab shows students how scientists measure the depth of the ocean floor. This is a lab that I often use right before teaching ocean subsurface topography.

In this lab, students will read the background reading provided, and they will create a model of the ocean floor by using a process similar to bathymetry. Students must use proper measuring techniques, mathematics, graphing, and problem solving skills.

This lesson includes two lab handouts that are differentiated by reading level. It also includes all directions, and many ideas for making this lab fit into a crunched time schedule.
