  • Participants are given the Science Inquiry and Science Literacy Outcomes 5 minutes Individually write questions and thoughts that connect this environmental disaster to Performance Outcome indicators in science inquiry and literacy Put each idea on a separate post-it note In groups share your questions and connections and post them on the wall sized PO charts
  • What specific science content knowledge is needed to address this aspect of the situation?
  • What skills, knowledge and technology are needed to 1. drill a relief well 1.6 miles deep 2. Collect the oil out of the water Transport the oil Stop the oil from spreading
  • How do we decide which is the least impactful on the environment Burn the oil Let it cover the water &amp; arrive on shore How do we begin to measure the impact What data could we collect What would wand to know once the crisi is over?
