Description:

Students learn from this lesson that oil and water form separate layers when mixed together because of their different densities. Students will conduct a simple experiment demonstrating the variable densities of corn syrup, water, glycerin, and vegetable oil. They will then transfer this concept to an examination of cleanup methods used in the Exxon Valdez oil spill. They will conclude by writing paragraphs hypothesizing what would happen during an oil spill if oil and water were of the same density and therefore easily combined.
