Activity Title: Introduction to Ocean Zones
Students will create a diagram of the ocean zones and
determine what organisms live in each zone. Students
will draw the appropriate scale to demark meters (and
conversion to feet) from 0-6000m and draw the zones
that correspond to the geological structures of the
ocean basin.
Objectives:Students will be able to:
1. Measure and draw a scale in meters of ocean depths
2.Identify ocean zones and geological structures in an
ocean basin
PROCEDURE
1. Measure and label the meter scale on either side of
the diagram from 0 m at the ocean surface down to
6,000 meters and the geological structures of the
ocean basin (continental shelf, slope, rise and abyssal
plain).
2. work at the top of the diagram, drawing the surface
of the ocean and structures found at the surface (lie, a
ship, a sailboat).
3. work on the bottom of the diagram, drawing a
seamount, trench, hydrothermal vents Labels and
features to include on diagram: Photic (sunlit) zone
Aphotic (no light) zone, Neritic system Benthic zone,

Pelagic zone, Bathyal zone , Abyssal zone and Hadal
zone .
