Science is all around us. Let's get ready to learn something new today with Mystery Science! 1. Tap the and watch the video. Make sure to stop and think about the questions asked. 2. 🗣 Talk to your family member about what you learned about the depth of the ocean. How did people first try to measure the ocean? How do we do it now? What have they discovered about the ocean and how deep is it? 3. 📄 Fold a piece of paper in half, or draw a line down the middle of your paper in a journal. 4. ✏️ On one side, write down everything you learned about the ocean's depth and how scientists figured this out over time. On the other side, draw a diagram of the ocean and include the different types of features they mentioned (mountains, trenches) and at least one of the interesting animals in the deepest part of the ocean. 5. Tap the add button. 6. Tap the camera button to take a picture of your notes and diagram. 7. Tap the mic to record yourself explaining your thoughts and walk us through your diagram.

How does it survive? What is it known for?
