Water, Water Everywhere, But...
Materials for teaching a unit on water pollution are provided in this teaching package. These materials include: (1) a student reading booklet; (2) a reference booklet listing a variety of popular chemical, biological, and physical tests which can be performed on a local waterway and providing information about the environmental effects and toxic limits of various potential pollutants; (3) a selection of simple in-class and field experiments printed on loose sheets for ease of reproduction; and (4) a teacher's guide to field testing a local water source. Although there are enough student reading materials, worksheets, and experiments to keep interest high for as long as 5 weeks, a 2 or 3 week unit is recommended. These materials, written at an approximate seventh-grade reading level, are designed especially for, but not limited to, students in grades 7 through 10. (JN)
