The Blue Planet – Seasonal Seas Documentary – Plants, Plant Eaters and Guardians

BBC Earth: The Blue Planet: Seasonal Seas Activity

For this lesson you will need access to The Blue Planet episode ‘Seasonal Seas,’ 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 seasonal seas that border the temperate zones are explored and so too are the conditions that change during the year. This documentary shows how the seasons affect the underwater world. While the summers are warm and gentle, the winters are cold with savage storms. It is harder for animals to survive in savage seas with strong winds. Plant 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 plant adaptations and 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 ten 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 and plants such as:

.Phytoplankton
.Copepods
.Bull Kelp
.Basking Shark

Students can then decide whether the organism is a plant, a plant eater or a guardian of a plant.

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

Answers for this viewing activity are included.
