Oceans Into The Deep
Describe Algebraic Patterns
This project will have you researching oceans and seas of the world, finding out about the different zones and what lives in each of the zones. There are 5 zones of the ocean, research what they are, their depths, plant & animal live of each.
Read the Real-World book, Oceans: Into the Deep. Does your information on the 5 zones match the book.
Next choose one of the oceans or seas, to do a more in depth report on it. Research that ocean or sea, things you should include:
1. The zones with its depths, temperatures and plant & animal life.
2. What countries border the ocean or sea?
3. Chart that shows the zones, depths, & temperatures at each one.
4. Choose an animal and do a mini report on that animal, covering
habitat, food, prey/predator, physical characteristics and some
interesting facts about that animal.
Oceans Into the Deep Scoring Guide:
_____ 20 - for the research information on the 5 zones and the names of
oceans and seas in those zones, along with a map that labels the
_____ 20 – Bar graphs that displays the 4 oceans & 4 seas, with their
depths in both feet and meters
_____ 20 – Create a input/output table from your bar graph of the oceans
and seas. You can use feet as your input and meters as the
output. Write your rule and equation and use that information
to find the outputs.
_____ 15 – Chart that list the average temperatures in the upper and
_____ 15 – Write some expression from the information of the average
temperatures of both the upper and lower zones
_____ 20 – Information report on your chosen ocean or sea along with
gathered information you found
_____ 15 – Neatness on your final project display
