Sewage Matrix and Field Experience
Students visit a sewage treatment plant and use an exercise to identify the effects of given sewage components on humans and the environment when sewage treatment is bypassed or fails. They read the provided "sewage matrix" worksheet and complete the questions either individually or as a class.
Sewage Spill into Biscayne Bay
Students use a hypothetical case study to learn about environmental health issues associated with water, recreational water, and sewage. They use an inquiry-based learning module to generate questions, draft a research plan, and generate possible solutions.
A Study of Your Domestic Water Supply
Students create a diagram that traces the path of a raindrop from its source into the water supply for their house and back to the environment. They also diagram the processes that occur in a sewage treatment and water treatment plant.
Recreational Water Contamination and Beach Closurew
Students work in teams to develop a presentation and handout representing a particular point of view in a recreational Water Contaminationand Beach Closure Debate. They synthesize their knowledge of recreational water, sewage, and their issues and present it persuasively to their peers.
Domestic Water Supply Case Study
Students follow the cycle of a raindrop from its source into the water supply for their houses and then back to the environment. They draw and, properly label and explain a diagram of a water treatment plant and a sewage treatment plant.
Water and Sewage Critical reading
Students read three articles with different points of view on the water and sanitation issues in the Florida Keys. They identify the facts and opinions in each article and write a summary. In addition, they write an essay expressing their own opinion about the issue.
Iona Wastewater Treatment Plant Field Trip
Young scholars go on a field trip to the Iona Wastewater Treatment Plant and learn about sewage, waste, and pollution. In this treatment plant lesson plan, students also complete collection samples of quadrats.
Saving the Bay
Students investigate water pollution prevention. In this ecology wastewater instructional activity, students activate prior knowledge about sewage, then view a video explaining the waste water sewage system used in the San Francisco Bay area. Students discuss water quality and the impact it has on one's health.
Goodbye Honey Buckets
Students investigate arctic geology and hydrology as well as tundra ecology as they consider options for sewage treatment. Public safety, environmental impact, and issues of construction and engineering be explored.
What Does Waste Do to a River?
Students develop a graphic way of visualizing the concept of a million by utilizing what had happened to the Nashua River due to the dumping of raw sewage in 1962.
What If the Reef Dies?
Pupils complete four activities to investigate how reef ecology can change. They perform experiments to show how sewage discharge can affect a marine ecosystem, look at substances that don't dissolve in water, examine wave action erosion, and determine what happens when fish are removed from the habitat.
Is There Sewage in My Sample?
Students explore the proximity of the Hudson Shelf Valley and the Hudson Canyon to one of the Nation's most populated areas. They study that from 1987 to 1992, two dumpsites in the Hudson Shelf Valley and Hudson Canyon, one 12 miles
Choices Make A Difference
Students are explained that wastewater treatment plants are regulated as to the quality of water they may discharge into our rivers and canals. They are explained that wastewater treatment plants clean many pollutants out of the wastewater, but they cannot clean all pollutants out of the water. Students are shown how chemicals that are dissolved in the water can pass through the wastewater treatment plant.
Are You Thirsty? The Effects of Pollution on Drinking Water
Discuss the availability of clean, plentiful water and the causes of water pollution. In groups, sixth graders discuss problem-solving methods for keeping water clean. They explore the function of water treatment plants and perform experiments to predict pollutants that can be stopped by filtration. You could apply reading standards to this lesson, but it would be most effective in a life sciences unit.
A 17-slide set explores the pollutants and problems with coastal waters. It dedicates a slide to each to individual bacteria, algae, oil, sewage, DDT, BCB, lead, mercury, methylmercury, and plant toxins. This would be most useful for an environmental or ocean sciences class at the middle or high school level.
The New Haven Oyster Industry and Water Quality
Students examine the different types of water pollutants and how they affect the waterways. In this environmental science lesson, students collect and interpret data from government agencies. They discuss how industrial development in their area affect the water resources.
Freshwater Fish Water Quality
Sixth graders work together to complete an experiment about the quality of freshwater. In groups, they collect fresh water samples from a variety of sources and test the pH levels. After completing a KWL chart, they test the amout of dissolved oxygen in the samples. To end the lesson, they relate this information to the requirements that freshwater fish need to survive.
The Treatment of Wastewater
Learners, through a series of lessons, study the various processes of treating wastewater. They participate in discussion and complete various worksheets and a hands-on activity, in which they observe the processes of filtration and leeching.
Family Education Survey
Sixth graders conduct an investigation of the local watershed with the help of an informational survey to collect data. They use the results of the survey to generate discussion with family members about environmental preservation and usage issues.
World Toilet Day
ï»¿In this World Toilet Day instructional activity, students complete activities such as reading a passage, matching phrases, fill in the blanks, choose the correct word, multiple choice, unscramble the words, sequencing, unscramble the sentences, write questions, take a survey, and writing. Students complete 12 activities for World Toilet Day.
