Our Savior Lutheran Third Graders Visit an Oil Rig

Today we traveled on our boat into the Gulf of Mexico to visit an  oil rig.

We learned that the oil is taken to an oil refinery where it is changed into gasoline for our cars.  It is also used to make petrochemicals, which are used to produce buttons, plastic toys, and the soles of shoes.  We learned that oil is very important to all of us!
