The Blue Planet – Open Ocean Documentary – Adaptations and Feeding Relationships

BBC Earth: The Blue Planet: The Open Ocean Activity
For this lesson you will need access to The Blue Planet episode ‘The Open Ocean,’ the DVD is not included, but this episode may be available on YouTUBE. The episode runs for approximately 50 minutes. This episode can also be found on Itunes for AU$2.99.

This episode can be found in the BBC Earth box set entitled ‘THE BLUE PLANET: A Natural History of the Oceans.’ This DVD box set contains 4 dvds.

In this episode the ‘marine deserts’ are explored and so too are the creatures that inhabit them. Animal adaptations and feeding relationships are shown in vivid detail here.

I made this viewing activity as a part of my multi-age unit called ‘Our Ocean Planet.’ I wanted my students to see these feeding relationships on screen, rather than just on a website or in a book.

This viewing sheet does not have questions for students to answer, but eight focus points for students to look out for during the episode. Students take notes under these focus points which include the adaptations and feeding relationships in sea creatures such as:

.Sardines
.Pacific Spotted Dolphins
.Mackerel
.Sunfish

Students can then decide whether the feeding relationships in this episode are commensal relationships, mutual relationships, cooperative relationship or based on parasitism.

This documentary is fabulous for showing students first hand, the different types of adaptations of sea creatures and their feeding relationships.

Answers for this viewing activity are included.
