Product Description
This lab activity will allow your students to undertake the most dangerous dive in history by venturing into the Abyss and submerge to the bottom of the Mariana Trench. During this dive your students will utilize their scientific observation skills to discover the secrets of the Abyss by witnessing unique geological events and biological activities such as alien life that only exists at these terrifying depths.
Students will document their journey so that others can visualize and learn about what exists within this treacherous alien world.

This activity is all about using science through observation. The objective is to train your students to improve on literacy, research and observation skills all while exploring the unknown. Learning about the Mariana Trench is a great example to use these skills and this activity packet is a very unique way to experience the journey first hand that requires commitment & extreme dedication .

REAL-WORLD APPLICATION: LAB ACTIVITY SHEETS
In this activity students will actually simulate getting inside a state of the art submersible (operate instruments) and plunge deep in the Mariana Trench. On their way down, they will explore the very cold and dark mysterious waters for the first time in human history. These activities put the students in the researcher’s shoes & gives them appreciation for the brave scientists who already accomplished this task.

INTERACTIVE & ENGAGING
With 30 pages of engaging content, included in this packet are interactive folding viewing port windows which are installed on the student’s submersibles. When they reach a certain depth, they will be allowed to open these windows and explore any alien life that exists on their way to the bottom of the Mariana Trench. This is where their observation skills will kick in. There are 10 “Unknown” species to explore and all our “real” pictures taken during the latest dive in 2012 by James Cameron. Students will love this!
