What kind of plants and animals live in our ocean? Why is the life we see in a warm sea like the Indian Ocean different from what we see in a cold sea like the North Atlantic?
In this activity you and your students will:
- Look at the environment of the northern North Atlantic and northern Indian Ocean.
- Look at some typical animals of each ocean.
- Look at the differences and similarities between these fauna and relate them to the environmental differences.
- Optional: Take it further by exploring the effects of climate change on life in our oceans.
This activity is part of a set of resources about the oceans of the world, developed in partnership with DP World, a leading provider of worldwide smart end-to-end supply chain logistics.
