Studying Oceanography with Google Expeditions

Grades: 9
Teachers: Sarah Hirschfeld and Mike Weiss
Subject: Physical Science
Project Name: Oceanography
Resources: Google Expeditions

Grade 9 students studying a new unit on Oceanography used the #googleexpeditions kit (donated by YEF) to learn about acidification in the ocean as well as "swimming" with some of the undersea creatures. Sarah Hirschfeld and Mike Weiss led the lessons and dressed appropriately in scuba gear.

  1. To sum things up, it is a science which joins physical oceanography, marine science, marine geography and sea life science. Oceanography helps in foreseeing climate and atmosphere, to keep a track on the abuse of the marine assets and impacts of contamination.
