Short description: On the website teachers could find lesson plans ready-to-use. These lesson plans present teachers with opportunities to bring EXTREME OIL into the classroom through both science and history. These lessons are for the high-school level.

Lesson Plan 1: Exploring the history of oil
In this lesson, students will examine the role oil has played throughout human history, how that role has changed over time, and the repercussions of oil use on society and the environment.

Lesson Plan 1: Exploring the science of oil
In this lesson, students will have an opportunity to take a virtual tour around a ground-based operation and an offshore drilling site whereby they can become familiar with how oil is extracted and processed.

Reflection: EXTREME OIL looks at how the oil industry must now go to extremes to find new sources of the asset that drives the world's economy and fuels so many aspects of our lives.
