Junior Marine Biology: Week 10

After 10 weeks of exploring our oceans with you, we’re at the end of this series of Junior Marine Biology online. We’ll be so sad to sea you go, but there’s still time to watch the incredible stop motion movies you sent us in video 1, and meet each other by watching your messages, jokes and fun facts in video 4.

This week, we’re finishing the series with a bang. Let’s explore what happens in the parts of the ocean where the light doesn’t shine: the deep sea and the ocean at night. Things get weird and wonderful as the sun goes down…

There are worksheets after videos 1 and 2 that can be printed before you start. For the activity after video 3, you’ll need some safety pins or paper clips, tape, a magnet, a strip of cloth for a blindfold and a piece of paper. Once you’re ready to get started, go ahead and press play on the first video.

It’s time to get crafty. Use the worksheet below and follow the instructions on how to create you own nighttime creature lantern. Send a picture of your finished lantern in action to [email protected].

Download the Lantern Worksheet here.

You can explore what other cool creatures live in the deep sea here.

There are so many weird and wonderful creatures that only come out at nighttime – they’re known as nocturnal animals. Use the worksheet below to help you research a nocturnal animal that lives near you. We would love to see what you found so email a picture of your finished worksheet to [email protected]

Download the Nocturnal Animal Research Worksheet here.

You can watch the Tuna Fishing Boat virtual reality film here. 

Challenge your family members to have a go at the game that Lawrence and Pip played. Share the science behind this game by explaining to them that using the magnet to find the paperclip is similar to how a shark finds its prey! How did they do? Did they find their dinner?

Thank you for those amazing facts, jokes and messages telling us what you love about marine biology. After so many weeks of you watching us, we  have absolutely loved meeting you all this week. We can’t thank you enough for participating in this program as we have really enjoyed creating it. To help us know what we did well and how we can improve it, please fill out this quick feedback form.

We hope you keep asking questions, keep protecting our oceans, keep in touch and please come visit us when it is safe to do so again! Please email us at [email protected] and keep our Junior Marine Biology community alive.

From Lawrence, Pip, Leanna, Nicole, Jo, Viv, Ali and the rest of the team at Six Senses Laamu, we want to thank you so much for choosing to join the Maldives Underwater Initiative. It is turtle-y fin-tastic to have you on the team.
