This incredible PowerPoint is what I use as the introduction to my "Open Ocean" unit. It focuses primarily on the epipelagic region of the open ocean, but provides a general understanding of the other zones as well. After reviewing this PowerPoint, students will be able to identify distinguishing characteristics of this ecosystem. This includes physical features, specific organisms, and organism interactions. This presentation encompasses dynamic animations and diagrams which help illustrate the interactions of organisms in an ecosystem and can be applied to general science as well.
If purchased, contact me and I will send you the fantastic lesson plans, homework assignment, and guided notes that have been created to go along with this presentation.
