    I watched this with my 4th, 5th and 6th grade Eco students! They were astonished at the effects this is having on our environment! They are determined to make a difference each and every day through their actions and by spreading the word!

    What a wonderful program. My second graders were truly impressed. Thank you so much. Our question is, “Could the oil eventually seep into the limestone in Florida and pollute our aquifer and therefore our drinking water?”

    We had 60 students watching it live and 60 more will be watching this archive. Thanks, this is so timely and such great information. Students need to know what is happening to their ecosystems and how to help our planet.

    This should be required viewing for all environmental science, and social studies classes. The footage and dialogue are very appropriate and kept all of our 4th graders glued to the smartboard! Thank you for the chance to view this important historical event.

    You should use a cartoon for the younger kids, so they can understand it better. This video is for adults but kids want to learn about this too. So make a cartoon webcast.

    The information presented was an eye opener and allowed my students to really understand the impact of this oil spill. My students were also glued to the smartboard and we had just recently celebrate Earth Day and studied the Exxon Valdez spill, so we have a great awareness to this type of catastrophe and its effects on the environment.

    Thank you so much for making this resource available.

    I downloaded the Philippe Cousteau webinar to use with our summer school students. However, the .m4v format will not play on the school’s computers. What program will play this format or is there a converter that will work?
    Thank you for any help you may be able to provide.

    When I sall what had happend it was a big disaster, I know that it’s a 104 days, and 7,000,000 barrles are in the gulf and on it’s way up Florda. Thay say that not all of Florda has the oil on the beaches and I found out that 1/4 of Florda is not with oil, and you may say it’s not all with oil, but I am whaching the oil spill on the news and google earth.
