Product Description
BBC Earth: The Blue Planet: The Deep Viewing Activity

For this lesson you will need access to The Blue Planet episode ‘The Deep,’ the DVD is not included, but this episode may be available on YouTUBE. The episode runs for approximately 50 minutes. It is also 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 depths of the ocean are explored and so too are the creatures that inhabit it. Animal adaptations such as bioluminescence, massive teeth and enormous mouths 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 adaptations on screen, rather than just on a website or in a book.

This viewing sheet does not have questions for students to answer, but eleven focus points for students to look out for during the episode.

Students take notes under these focus points which include the adaptations of sea creatures such as the:
.Sperm Whale
.Comb Jellyfish
.Hairy Angler
.Gulper Eel
.Deep Sea Angler

Students can then decide whether the adaptations listed in the documentary are behavioural, structural or functional adaptations.

This documentary is fabulous for showing students first hand, the different types of adaptations of sea creatures with a particular focus on bioluminescence.

Answers for this viewing activity are included.

Living things have structural features and adaptations that help them to survive in their environment.
