Exploring Effects of Oil Spills on Birds part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students will use magnifying lenses to examine feathers and will name and describe characteristics of the feathers. As they are guided through explaining how feathers help birds, they will examine a container of water. They will place the feather in water, describe it, and then place it in the same container after oil has been added to the water. They will observe and name the differences to the water and to the feather.
