Prince William's Oily Mess - A Tale of Recovery
How does an ecosystem recover from a major one-time insult such as an oil spill?

This lesson includes links to many other oil related lesson plans. For more about NOAA Ocean Service Education, see here: http://oceanservice.noaa.gov/education/welcome.html
