In this online Flash game, learners will explore a coral reef using an underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV).
Topographic Investigation: Map an Underwater Surface

Treasures in the RoughAdd to list Details
In this archaeology activity, learners make observations and conduct an experiment to demonstrate the effect saltwater has on artifacts.
Map That Habitat
Historically, sea floor mapping (bathymetry) was done by soundings.
Using simple, inexpensive items, learners build and test submarine models.
Cartesian DiverAdd to list Details
In this quick activity (page 1 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: California Fish), learners will build a simple Cartesian Diver in an empty 2-liter bottle.
In this outdoor activity, learners go "can fishing" and discover the kinds of aquatic organisms that live in and on submerged cans.
