Water Filtration. Grades 3-5.
Rushton, Erik; Ryan, Emily; Swift, Charles
One of our most valuable and often overlooked resources is water. We can survive for a couple of weeks without food but only a few days without water. Having clean water to drink is a luxury. The water that comes out of our faucets does not always start off safe to drink. Most often it has visited a treatment plant prior to reaching our glasses. In this activity, students learn about the importance of water and the role it plays in our lives. Students are exposed to what occurs each day so that they can have clean water. This activity requires a 60-minute time period for completion. (Author/SOE)
