Fifth graders study the impact of human activity on water quality and on the ecosystems of Earth. After a discussion on the various ways that water can be polluted, groups of youngsters get together to figure out the best way to clean a polluted sample of water. They must choose between screening, sedimentation, filtration, and chemical treatment. A terrific, hands-on science lesson.
