They'll also have a chance to explore the different habitats found in the ocean, from the shallows to the deep sea. best of all, the trip can be taken at any time, from anywhere in the world.

In an elementary school classroom, you can use this VR field trip to explain the different types of ocean habitats and the creatures that live there. As the narrator takes students through the different areas of the ocean, ask your students questions about the creatures they see and the habitats they live in. For example, you might ask:

  • What kind of animal is that?
  • Where do you think it lives?
  • What does it eat?
  • How does it breathe?

Encouraging students to think about the different ways that animals adapt to their environment is a great way to introduce them to the concepts of ecology and evolution.

2. Use it as a supplement to a unit on marine ecology

The trip can also be used as a supplement to a unit on marine ecology. It can be used to introduce the different types of fish and other creatures that live in the ocean. Throughout the trip, voiceovers from real scientists will provide information about the different creatures and their ecology.

Students will also have a chance to learn about the role of coral reefs in the ocean ecosystem and how they provide homes for many different types of fish.

As an educator, you can guide your lesson plans by using the trip as a resource. You can pause the VR experience at different points to provide more information about what students see.

In a high school classroom, for example, you can use the trip to introduce students to the concepts of food webs and trophic levels.

As you pause the VR experience, you can explain how the different creatures are connected in the food web. You can also use it as a way to discuss human impact on ocean ecosystems and how we can conserve them for future generations.
