NOAA Ocean Explorer

So you want to explore the world's oceans? What's that you say? You don't have an advanced degree in oceanography, expensive sea exploration equipment or a major funding source? Visitors to this very thorough and well-designed site may now feel free to breathe a collective sigh of relief. Created by NOAA, this lovely resource offers several categories of valuable content, including the "Explorations" area, where visitors can follow a number of featured ocean expeditions. For those who find themselves interested in how all of this is made possible, the "Technology" section offers comprehensive descriptions and explanations of the equipment used on such voyages. Educators will appreciate all of this content, but most importantly, they should feel free to direct their attention to the "Education" area, which includes standards-based lesson plans that are engaging and well-thought out. Finally, the site also has a light-hearted area titled "Fun & Facts", where visitors may download desktop wallpaper and take on an ocean challenge puzzle.
