Learn sumtin' new every day
I had no idea that we had something called the Minerals Management Service (MMS) working out of the USA Department of the Interior.
Always interesting are the kid's pages. There you can find these topics for learnin'
- Exploring Oil Seeps
- Drilling for Oil in the Ocean
- The Ocean's Sand, A Natural Resource
- Find out what sea water is made of. (hints: sea salt, H20)
- Historic Shipwrecks in the Gulf of Mexico
Extra credit on the last activity will be given to kids who study up on the latest wrecks: Ivan whipped up 50-foot waves that destroyed platforms, damaged pipelines and set drilling rigs adrift.
