A free YouTube video and downloadable PDF file based on a substance called ambergris, produced by sperm whales and used in the making of perfumes. References to the use of ambergris during the Black Death, as part of the King of England's breakfast, and use by the ancient Egyptians.
A fun introductory topic to themes such as chemistry, World Oceans Day, environment, conservation, whales, oceans, and the seaside. But equally of use for lessons on history, geography, smoking, laws, synthetic chemicals, and smell as one of our senses.
