Oil Spills and the Damage They Inflict on the Environment – Everything you need is right here including the lesson (student and teacher versions), 4 embedded videos and a student lesson handout. The lesson begins by examining the case of the Deepwater Horizon which blew up in 2010 and caused massive damage to the Gulf Coast. It then looks at the relationship between Oil and Water, Oil Spills, Preventing Oil Spills, The Environmental, Economic, and Social Effects and ends with Cleaning up oil spills.
Inside the lesson package you’ll find:
– The teacher version of the power point
– The student version of the power point
– 4 embedded videos
– Student lesson handout
In order, the lesson covers:
– Case study – Deepwater Horizon
– Oil and Water
– Oil Spills
– Preventing Oil Spills
– The Environmental Effects
– Economic and Social Effects
– Cleaning up oil spills
The student version of the power point contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
“Very informative and easy for my high school, special education, environmental studies class to follow.”
