The Gulf oil spill as a learning tool — information around the web

I have noticed some great information lately about how to use the Gulf oil spill in classroom and problem-based learning activities. A blog page by Eric Brunsell at ttp://www.edutopia.org/blog/oil-spill-project-based-learning-resources (Project-Based Learning and the Gulf Oil Spill) collects many of these resources nicely. There is also a great learning activity for grades 6-12 from the New York Times at http://learning.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/05/05/the-drill-on-the-spill-learning-about-the-gulf-oil-leak-in-the-lab/. I strongly recommend both if you are thinking about ways to use the Gulf oil spill in the classroom or as part of group assignments.

    There is nothing at all about this catastrophe in the mainstream news right now. I am wondering, how long BP and our government are planning to keep the American People and the World from learning the actual extent of this disaster with their unconstitutional ban on the truth?

    First the first Gulf oil spill, now we see that the second one has exploded in Louisiana. I sure hope that this doesn’t mean more environmental destruction. On the other hand, this nation needs this homegrown energy. This such a complicated problem to figure out. I’m not sure what the solution is.
