WOW #22: Great Green Gobs of Greasy, Grimy Gulf Oil Grime…

Hopefully you all have been able to listen to/watch the DE webinar with Phillipe Cousteau on the Gulf Oil Spill.  If not, here’s a link to the archive.  It’s a really great resource for your students to understand more about the long-term ramifications of this environmental disaster.

To back up this great resource, I’d like to share another that does a really great job of organizing and explaining everything going on with the spill.  The New York Times website has a wonderful Interactive Map that tracks:

  • The Gulf Oil Spill Timeline
  • Where it has Made Landfall
  • Efforts to stop the Leak
  • Effects on Wildlife

It’s a great tool for a few reasons:

  • Everything is easy to access on one site
  • Effective images to support the facts
  • Archived by dates
  • Interactive!!!
