1 Ocean Life Zones

2 Foldable Front Cover Fold Paper in Half Hamburger Style Cut along dashed lines to create 5 flaps Ocean Life Zones

3 Foldable Intertidal Zone Neritic Zone Bathyal Zone Turn your foldable sideways and label the sections Ocean Life Zones Benthic Zone Abyssal Zone

4 1. Intertidal Zone Between high and low tide lines Changes a lot between water and dry land = Difficult for animals and plants to survive because they must be able to live outside of water To avoid being washed out to sea, organisms (plants and animals) must attach themselves to the ground

5 2. Neritic Zone Plenty of sunlight Low water pressure Constant temperature LOTS of organisms live here!

6 3. Pelagic Zone (sunlight zone) Means “open sea” (Greek = “pelagos” Water is deeper here At the surface, there is lots of light Down below, the water gets colder and the water pressure increases

7 4. Bathyal Zone (twilight zone) Below the pelagic zone At the bottom of this zone, there is no sunlight = There are no plants that grow  Harder for animals to live here

8 5. Abyssal Zone NO sunlight reaches this zone – Some animals produce their own light Little food is available Very high water pressure Water temperature is very low/cold 5. Abyssal Zone (midnight zone)

9

10 Organisms of Each Ocean Life Zone Intertidal = hermit crab, sea star, mussels, sea urchin Neritic = Loggerhead sea turtle, mackerel, cod, kelp, dolphin Pelagic = Great White shark, Nurse Shark, Killer Whale (Orca) Bathyal = Blue Whale, Humpback Whale Abyssal = Anglerfish, Giant Squid, Viperfish
