The Mission Director is in overall charge of the expedition, and is responsible for planning the expedition to explore the deep ocean. They work with a lot of different people to make sure everything goes well from scientists to engineers, and boat captains to submarine pilots. As a Mission Director, you will need to have a good understanding of the ocean, how to explore the deep sea and some of the life you might expect to find.
To help with the planning of our deep sea mission, the Mission Director needs a diagram showing the different layers of the ocean and extra information about underwater exploration and some of the life found in the deep. It is very important that your diagram is to scale, otherwise the expedition might get lost!
Make it simple
For younger children, adults can create the paper version of the deep sea diagram. Download the Deep sea coloring booklet and have younger children color in some examples of deep sea life and exploration. Then cut these out and stick them at the correct depths. This can make a great wall display.
