An Amazing Collection of Stunning Photographs and Facts About Ocean Creatures

Annika Siems and Wolfgang Dreyer's Into the Deep: An Exploration of Our Oceans is a beautiful coffee table book that all ocean lovers will want to add to their collection of books. Stunning photographs and interesting facts about life in the ocean make this book a must-have for anyone who enjoys learning about the ocean. Each chapter features amazing creatures and facts about each one. Much of the oceans' life still remains a mystery to us, but the information contained in this book has much to offer. Divers have contributed a wealth of knowledge that is featured in Into the Deep: An Exploration of Our Oceans.

Readers can begin with learning about the tiniest creatures who make the ocean their home. There are tiny and amazing creatures in every drop of sea water. These creatures can only be seen with the use of a microscope. Did you know that the green color of the ocean comes from sunlight on green algae called plankton? This is just one of the amzing facts that is presented in the chapter about the tiny creatures in the ocean.

The diet of the whale is presented in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 presents information obtained from divers who explore the depths and bring stunning photographs to the surface. The depths of our oceans are extremely colorful with underwater gardens.

The authors also contribute a brief statement concerning our responsibility in saving our oceans. Enormous amounts of plastic is present in our ocean, and the authors encourage us to stop using plastic bags, packaging material made of plastic, and plastic bottles.

Into the Deep: An Exploration of Our Oceans was published by Prestel Publications and has an ISBN of 978-3-7913-7390-4.

Science Teachers Bring Ocean Exploration Into the Classroom With Into the Deep

Science teachers who teach oceanography will want to add Into the Deep: An Exploration of Our Oceans to the classroom library. This informative and beautifully photographed book offers students the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge about our oceans.

The vocabulary of learning about the ocean is an important part of this book. Scientific vocabulary is always a part of the curriculum in a science class and students will enjoy reading through each page of Into the Deep to discover the vocabulary of the ocean.

*Prepare a vocabulary list of words that are associated with oceanography and assign groups of students to discover the meaning of these words through use of Into the Deep.

*Study the life of the whale with Chapter 2 of Into the Deep. What do whales eat? How many types of whales live in our oceans? What is krill?

*Assign a creative writing project for students to imagine themselves as a diver who explores the depths of our oceans. The chapter on diving offers a wealth of possibilities for students to write about.

*Discover the colors that can be found under the ocean. Scientific facts are presented about how the colors are present in the dark of the ocean depths.

*Discover the life of several kinds of squids that exist in the ocean.

*Explore the chapter on the "monsters" of the sea. Assign a creative writing project for students to choose their favorite sea monster from the chapter and write about an experience that they might encounter as a diver when meeting one of these monsters.

*Organize a class project to collect the types of plastics that we use and engage students in a discussion of the importance of recycling plastics so that this material does not end up in our oceans. The lucky students who live close to a beach can organize a beach clean-up to remove plastic trash from the beach.

*Prepare a study of what happens when plastic material goes into the ocean.

*The authors have included a comprehensive vocabulary index of ocean terms and scientific terms associated with oceanography. Encourage students to become interested in these terms.
