Stories & STEAM

Welcome back to another episode of Stories & STEAM. This week we are talking about and experimenting with keeping our oceans clean and safe. Our book this week is called, Save the Ocean by Bethany Stahl. Then we experiment at home with our version of an oil spill, so we can see first hand how difficult it is to clean the ocean after an oil spill. Enjoy and learn!
