Deep Blue Sea
I can’t help but think of Mr. Ray from Finding Nemo when I see this neat ocean zones experiment. Mr. Ray sings a song about the oceans zones to his class that starts like this:
“Oooh, let’s name the zones, the zones, the zones. Let’s name the zones of
the open sea: mesopolagic, bathyal, abyssalpelagic. All the rest are too
deep for you and me to see.”
So with the song in mind, look how fantastic this ocean zones-in-a-jar experiment is for modeling the different layers of the ocean! You probably already have all the supplies in your pantry and you can pull it off in 5 minutes or less! What a great way to help your Little Cousteau understand more about ocean habitats and the deep blue sea!
