A lesson plan by Barbara Mayer

The overall purpose of this unit is to introduce students to the general system for mapping the seafloor remotely, since most of the seafloor is deep and not visible from the sea surface. In Lesson #1, students will model a seafloor with shoeboxes and blocks, and then map the "seafloor" using yakitori skewers or lei needles. Lesson #2 is a teacher demonstration modeling echolocation. Lesson #3 allows students to interpret an actual seafloor map from the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands.

Grades 7 to 12, Earth Science.
