Water Pollution, Teachers' Edition.
Lavaroni, Charles W.; And Others
One of three in a series about pollution, this teacher's guide for a unit on water pollution is designed for use in junior high school grades. It offers suggestions for extending the information and activities contained in the textual material for students. Chapter 1 discusses the problem of water pollution and involves students in processes of observing, gathering data, analyzing, and hypothesizing. Chapter 2 gives up-to-date information pertaining to the problems and considers water shortage, water users, surface and ground water pollution, sources of water pollution, pollution disasters, financial effects of water pollution, water treatment facilities, governmental action, and planning and zoning. Chapter 3 contains 21 student investigations - experiments, demonstrations, projects - designed to illustrate such processes as evaporation, condensation, and oxidation and provide opportunities to experiment with solutions, suspensions, and precipitates. Utilizing a question format, the last chapter outlines a series of discussions, activities, and projects concerning water pollution suited to individual, small group, and large group work. Numerous illustrations supplement the text. Related documents are SE 012 758 and SE 012 760. (BL)
