Bring up the Deepwater Horizon (BP) oil spill that occurred in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. Display the colorful diagram of the coastal and marine organisms living in the area.

After gathering information from each of these sources, learners participate in a classroom discussion to prepare themselves to write an essay about the ethics of helping these animals. Terrific resources are included to make this a memorable lesson for your environmental scientists!
