Water Sourcebook. Grades 3-5.
Tennessee Valley Authority, Knoxville.
The goal of this supplemental activity guide for elementary students in grades 3-5 is to develop awareness, knowledge, and skills for sound water use decisions. Materials developed for the program are compatible with existing curriculum standards established by State Boards of Education throughout the United States and teach concepts included in those standards by using water quality information as the content. The guide is divided into five chapters that cover the topics of: (1) an introduction; (2) drinking water and wastewater treatment; (3) groundwater; (4) surface water; and (5) wetlands. Sixty-one activities including "hands-on" components are designed to blend with existing curricula in the areas of general science, language arts, math, social studies, art, and, in some cases, reading or other areas. Each activity details: (1) objectives; (2) subjects; (3) time necessary; (4) materials; (5) background information; (6) advance preparation; (7) procedure (including activity, follow-up, and extension); and (8) resources. Contains factsheets and a 273-word glossary. (LZ)
