Moving without Wheels

Pupils observe a simple water cycle model to better understand its role in pollutant transport. This activity shows one way in which pollution is affected by the water cycle; it simulates a point source of pollution in a lake and the resulting environmental consequences. Students discover that once a pollutant is introduced into the environment, it is possible, but generally very difficult, to clean up.

Lesson Planet has been nothing short of amazing! Lesson Planet is a part of my weekly lesson planning regimen. I teach my children the importance of collaboration and I think Lesson Planet is an excellent example of how collaboration can help improve ones learning.
