Environmental Pollution, Student's Book (Experiences/Experiments/Activities).
Weaver, Elbert C.
Described in this student's manual are numerous experiments to acquaint the learner with community environmental problems. Experiments are relatively simple and useful in the junior high school grades. Activities are provided which emphasize some of the materials involved in pollution problems, such as carbon dioxide, sulfur compounds, and others, excepting those which would be hazardous to student health. Experiments are "open-ended" in that problems are presented and methods recommended by which they may be solved. However, these methods are not the only ones and alternative approaches are suggested and encouraged. Following the experiments are elementary and advanced pollution quizzes. A related document is the Teacher's Manual, SE 012 562. (BL)
