Oil Spills :STEM Activity
Explore what happens to water environments during an oil spill.
Students will be exploring what happens to the water and animals in an area where an oil spill has occurred. In this hands-on activity-based class, students will be recreating a small scale oil spill in a container of water to observe what happens during an oil spill as well as discovering ways to help after an oil spill. No background knowledge is necessary and students will be evaluated throughout the lesson by being given check for understanding questions.
Environmental Biology is my first passion! I have my Bachelor's degree in Environmental Biology and used to teach elementary and middle school-aged groups about water pollution and ways we can all help decrease pollution. My teaching approach is to used fun hands-on activities to engage students to explore science!
Students will need a container of water, oil (any kind), a feather, and dish soap.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
