    Watershed: ⭐
    This hands-on activity is part of my environmental education unit to help teach students about the importance of watersheds. Students will learn what one is, create it and be able to describe how it is important to humans. Students will also manipulate and explain how pollutants can affect our drinking water.

    This lesson was designed and used with my grade 7 small group and inclusion science students. After learning of the Gulf Oil spill, many of my students had questions about what would happen to the land and water in the surrounding areas. Their questions inspired me to create a unit based on our planet, Earth.

    An answer key is included as well as a teacher information sheet.

    Oil Spill STEM Activity: ⭐
    This inquiry-based resource is an environmental STEM activity. Students will create an environment to mimic an oil spill. This will allow students to see the effect oil has on the Earth. Students will then create an effective economical cleanup method to clean their disaster. This is a great inquiry group activity that allows students to put on their thinking cap to solve real-life problems!

    Included, you will receive:

    • Notes to the Teacher
    • Student instructions sheet
    • Student activity worksheets
    • Post activity questions
    • Rubric

    This activity can be modified to be used as a multi-day activity or a single day activity, choose which method will fulfill your needs.

    Please note that due to the nature of the lab, it is difficult to provide an answer key as this is a student inquiry lab. Students are working together to choose different materials to use that will most effectively clean up an oil spill. However, there are some recommendations provided. A rubric is provided. A teacher and student instruction sheet are also included.
