PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an end-of-the-unit oceanography project designed for 5th grade GATE (Gifted and Talented) students but could be modified for a regular ed classroom. Just like when they play Tic Tac Toe, students must select three boxes in a row to complete according to ALL directions in the boxes by the due date. Various tasks include creating an Oceans Powerpoint with specific slide content parameters, a Baby Book for a deep-sea creature of their choice, a Crossword Puzzle showcasing important vocabulary from the unit, writing a Jacques Cousteau journal after researching his contributions to oceanography, creating a Pollution Poster, and more! Topics covered: features of the ocean floor (continental shelf, continental slope, continental rise, abyssal plain, trench, seamount, guyot, and volcanic island), properties of ocean water (salinity, currents, waves, tides), and ecosystems of the ocean (plankton, nekton, benthos). I usually allow at least one week to complete this project. The kids, especially GATE kids, love to design their own projects - giving them choices allows them to showcase their knowledge in the way that best suits them. They really enjoy this project!
