Oil's Impact on Black Mangrove Trees

This Oil's Impact on Black Mangrove Trees activity & project also includes:

Here is a handsome hands-on investigation of how oil spills affect the trees in mangrove swamps. The only tiny downside to this resource is the fact that there is no handout with the lab instructions, so you will either need to create one, display the procedure via a projector, or verbally walk your ecologists through the experiment. Don't let this deter you, however. Much learning and real-world connections are to be made through the lesson and the replete resources. The plan is thoughtfully written and also links you to lessons about the animals affected by oil spills.
