Learning Environment Class Subject: Science Classroom Setting: Students will be in a science based computer lab. Time Limit: They will be given an hour to go through all the slides, and create a presentation.Since students will not be able to experience the ocean hands on, then they will be looking at maps, videos, and simulations to get a more in-depth view.
ObjectivesStudents will be able to locate where each of the four oceans are on a world map that is given to them by taking a quiz on this presentation.Students will be able to precisely apprehend facts about certain animals that are presented in this lesson by taking a true or false quiz at the end of this lesson. Student will be able to accurately answer questions when asked to give facts about certain ocean animals.

Overview:Bottlenose DolphinsLocationNasal sacs inside the dolphin's head are what make it possible for the dolphins to vocalize.Blowholes on top of the dolphins head are what allow it to breathe. Since they are mammals, unlike most sea creatures, they have to come up to the surface for air every now and then. Dolphins hunt they prey in groups. It is very rare to see them eat alone. Dolphins will eat almost any kind of fish. Their diets also include squid and small crustaceans such as shrimps. They swallow their food whole.
Bottlenose DolphinsDolphins sleep with one eye open so they can look out for predators that can harm them. This means that they only use half of their brains while they are sleeping!
http://true-wildlife.blogspot.com/2011/02/bottlenose-dolphin.html13Sea HorsesLocationThere are at least 25 different species of sea horses. . Sea horses eat tiny organism off of plants that they latch onto. They eat these by sucking them through their long tube-like snouts. Sea horses can move their eyes independently from one another, so that they can also keep a look out for their predators.
Sea HorsesFun Fact:Female sea horses lay their eggs on the males abdomen where theres a pouch called a brood pouch. This is where the eggs continue to grow until they hatch. Therefore, the male is the one that takes mothers its young, and gives birth to them.
Great White SharksFun Fact:After eating a sea lion or a seal, the great white shark can live up to a month or two without eating again.
