The ocean is an ever-changing underwater landscape. When it comes to mapping our world, political boundaries and topographic lines are a familiar sight. However, despite the fact that the ocean covers more than two-thirds of our planet, it is often relegated to the background of these maps.
This education resource places the focus on the life, flow, and change found within the ocean. Going beyond just bathymetry, the accompanying Ocean Tiled Map combines different elements to capture ocean patterns and present a meaningful and cohesive view of the world ocean. The five learning activities included in this resource encourage students to explore the map and engage with the themes of life, flow, and change. In order to protect the ocean for future generations, it is important to see the ocean as a living space.
