Once the pride of the German Navy, this 700-foot long heavy cruiser was used by the United States as a test target for two atom bombs at Bikini atoll. Today, at the bottom of the ocean, the radiation levels of the Prinz Eugen are low enough for safe exploration. Jonathan explores this mysterious shipwreck. In the associated lesson plan, students research shipwrecks to create the story of a shipwreck and the accompanying artifacts. Acting as marine archaeologists, students will record information about each item as they excavate and analyze it. Finally, they will present their findings to the other teams of marine archaeologists.
