I'm based in the UK and was in need of some Oil Spill exercises for my Year 7 (11 Years old) pupils. I found your webpage and some really useful resources.

I teach 7th grade in Georgia. This resource aligns directly with the standards. I would recommend it to everyone.

Cheryl Parker

This gave background knowledge to my students as we were beginning a unit on oil spills. It helped them better understand what can happen. I feel as if it gave them deeper knowledge in knowing how to clean up an oil spill during our lab activity.
