|Title of Activity||What happens in an oil spill|
|Name of School||Cherry Tree Elementary|
|Time Needed:||20 min|
|Description of Activity:||Set up the clear container of water at eye level for the kids. Have a few rocks in the water.
Pour a small amount of oil into the water. Watch it spread by itself, then mix it with the beater to simulate the waves.
Examine where the oil is.
Dip some feathers into the oil and compare to dry feather. (You can let the kids dip a feather in)
Have the kids try to clean off the feathers and get them back to normal. Not easily done. This shows how animals are effected and how hard it is even for people to help clean the animals.
