Introduction to Ocean Exploration - Stations of Learning

STEM Learning Module
Robert Ballard TED Talk
Ocean Exploration Trust

Use this lesson to introduce students to how & why we explore the world’s oceans. Dr. Robert Ballard’s TED Talk establishes a connection encouraging all viewers to cultivate a collective desire to explore the ocean and to stress the importance of continued exploration. 

Because all students love to both talk and get up out of their seats, this lesson is designed with interactive stations of learning. Begin each day with a portion of the TED talk (8 ½ minutes on day one, 8-minutes on day two), then rotate through stations (2 per day) to investigate aspects of ocean exploration introduced by Dr. Ballard
