Investigating Earth Systems: Oceans

Throughout this module, students will use hands-on, inquiry-based explorations to investigate:

  • properties of seawater.
  • how ocean water circulates and how currents are formed.
  • different features of the ocean floor and how the ocean floor is mapped.
  • how the ocean floor got its shape.

Use the navigation on the right to explore resources that will be useful for the investigations.
