Where does Offshore Oil come from?

The new Earthlearningidea published today aims to dispel misconceptions about the source of oil - 'Where does offshore oil come from?'

This cartoon block diagram of a coastal area shows many of the misconceptions shown by educational research about where people think oil from offshore areas is actually found. In this activity pupils are asked to tick on the table provided whether the source shown on the diagram is right, partly right or wrong. A discussion about their results then follows. They could also try one of the related activities about oil and gas listed on the website.
