ORC: The Ohio Resource Center

The Ohio Resource Center for Mathematics, Science, and Reading spotlight topic is investigating The Science of Oil Spills.

"Current events present us with unique learning opportunities. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico gives us a chance to connect what budding scientists are learning in the classroom to the world. We've pulled together a set of materials that can be used to examine the oil spill through a variety of lenses. - ORC*ON, The Ohio Resource Center

E-publications are presented by grade level, K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12, and detail a variety of resources including podcasts, lessons, and activities covering the oil spill, it's environmental impact, clean up, and response.
