Keep it Clean: A Water Pollution Experiment is a great hands on activity to teach the importance of taking care of our water supply. It can be tied into science or STEAM curriculum or can be used as a stand alone lesson on Earth Day.
In this activity, students will listen as the teacher reads a story about a family and their trip to a lake. In the story, the family encounters many forms of pollution. For the experiment part of this resource, students will start with a clean container of water. As the teacher reads, students will add pollutants to their water supply. At the conclusion of the story, students will be given the task of trying to clean their water supply.
This resource gives students a valuable lesson in water pollution and taking care of our water!
