Scenes From Edison's Geography Bee
Edison Oil Spill Challenge
In this video, Henry and Tatum discuss what they learned from participating in the Oil Spill Challenge in the Edison library. As the 4th grade biome unit concluded, Mrs. Greska and Mrs. McGinnis discussed the 2010 Deepwater Horizon explosion and subsequent oil spill with the 4th graders. This catastrophe caused over two hundred million gallons of oil to spill into the Gulf of Mexico, severely impacting the environment, ocean animals, plant life, and the economy and tourism in the region. The 4th graders learned the problems that needed to be solved, and the tools used in real life to help in the recovery to clean this up. Edison 4th graders were challenged to use tools designed to simulate what was done in 2010 to protect the coastline, tend to the oil covered animals and clean up an oil spill. Check out what Tatum and Henry have to say!
