Materials List: Map That Habitat

Each group needs:

  • shoebox with lid; in the lid make a grid formation (10 rows x 10 columns; see the Bathymetry Measurement Worksheet) of small holes that are the diameter of the sounding stick
  • a "seafloor" to be fixed into the bottom of box; make this topographic relief from plastic, hardened clay, rocks, etc.
  • sounding stick; use a thin rod that is longer than the box depth
  • data collection sheets to create a bathymetry profile, ~10 per group
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • ruler
  • glue or tape
