Water Pollution

Fifth graders observe and record what happens when household products are added to a tank of water to depict water pollution. They brainstorm ideas of how to clean the contaminate out of the water before watching demonstrations of screening, sedimentation, filtration, and chemical treatment. Finally, they record what occurs, and discuss facts about the expense and time consumption involved in cleaning contaminated water.
