Effects of Water Pollution on Aquatic Organisms
Young scholars investigate water pollution. They develop an understanding of the behavior of organisms, of the structure and properties of matter, and of natural and human induced hazards by conducting lab tests. They present their data appropriately in the form of graphs and report their investigation, results and conclusions in the form of a written lab report.

Water Pollution and Water Quality Assessment
Experiments are great ways to learn and explore new topics. Third graders discuss how some macroinvertebrates can live in polluted water, while others cannot. They head to the computer lab with guiding worksheets as they learn more about the affects of water pollution and adaptations in the macroinvertebrate population.

The Water Planet
Young scholars can recognize that pollutants affect water quality. They can discuss how a surface pollutant can be removed from water and recognize the importance of keeping water clean. In the junior primary, students investigate how water pollution affects plant life, in middle primary, investigate problems and solutions associated with oil pollution and in upper primary, identify causes of water degradation.

What Does Earth Day Mean? - Biology Teaching Thesis
Students possible sources of water pollution, and explain the effects that water pollution can have on the food on the food chain. They Name human and other animal (i.e. fish) illnesses that can be contracted from drinking polluted water, as well as what these illnesses can do to a person or other animal.

What's in the Water?
Fifth graders use the dots to simulate water pollutants in a lake. They use cups to collect a sample of "water." Students sort the dots by color and record the number of each dot color under the correct pollutant name in the Lake Water Pollutants Data Table.

A Closer Look at Pollution
Young scholars research the effects of pollution. In this land and water pollution lesson, students discuss the needs of all living things, read The Berenstein Bears Don't Pollute (Anymore), discuss the problem in Bear Country, and discuss the causes and effects of pollution.

Fifth graders examine the water cycle and its different states. In this water cycle lesson, 5th graders explore water pollution's impact on all life and discuss the calls for preservation and conservation of water. Students identify the process water undergoes through the environment which includes soil, air, plant, animal life, clouds, and bodies of water.

Frog Alert! Frog Alert!
Students visit the National Geographic Kids magazine article "The Weird World of Frogs" to find some amazing facts about frogs. They discuss these facts with the class and study how water pollution affects the frogs. Then they make posters to show how to prevent the different types of water pollution.

Enviroscape: Water Pollution
Fourth graders inspect earth science by conducting a class discussion. In this water properties lesson, 4th graders examine a model of a watershed which demonstrates how water becomes polluted. Students collaborate in small groups in order to examine the water sources and pollution within their city.

Water Pollution and Food Chains
Sixth graders study the effect of pollution in our food chains. For this plant biology lesson, 6th graders first experiment with pollution by placing a carnation in colored water. Next they use a food chain triangle to see the concept of "bioaccumulation" and how a polluted plant leads to a polluted human being.
