In this activity, students use everyday materials to develop devices, based on real tools, that can be used to clean up oil spills in ocean waters. They evaluate the effectiveness of their devices with and without the use of a dispersant.
Included in this 6 page activity pack:
- background information on oil and oil spills
- teacher instructions
- student instructions
- student data sheet
Although you can find free resources that explain the gist of this activity, the instruction sheets and student worksheets that I created are clear, organized, and look both professional and fun. If you are like me, that matters! Additionally, visual learners will appreciate the clear structure and fun fonts. Finally, I was able to utilize clip art from Etsy seller, FunkyMushrooms, to make it all look absolutely wonderful as well!
