The waves of the ocean are in constant motion; rising and falling in varied rhythms. Ocean currents, both surface and deep, flow like rivers. And the level of the ocean rises and falls with daily tides. In this lesson students will learn about these powerful movements of the ocean. Students will experience in 360 VR, both a stormy ocean and a calm beach shoreline. Wave discussion will include the movement of water particles in a wave, the breaking of waves onto the shoreline and the power of a tsunami. Students will experience a 360* map of global winds and discuss how they affect ocean currents. And finally students will handle IFXs including the moon and Earth and see how movement can cause daily tides. Class ends with a virtual surfing experience.
I decorated the science lab like a tidal pool so i added a water plane, coral and sponges, fish, starfish, an octopus and seaweed throughout the room. Decorate as you would like.
