Grade Level 3-6.
I originally created this lab to spice up my mixtures and solutions unit a few years ago. It has evolved into a STEM inspired activity that incorporates mixtures, solutions, environmental factors, conservation, team building and budgeting skills.
This group activity is intended to increase awareness of human impacts on the environment, as well as how difficult and expensive it is to make the water resources we have clean enough for human consumption.
Students will work in teams to come up with a budget and strategy to clean a sample of polluted water. The lab incorporates mixtures, solutions, density, magnetism, environmental factors, conservation, engineering, math, and more!
Great for science centers, stations, and lab day!
Includes Teacher Instructions, Lab Sheet, Budget and Planning Sheet, and Reflection Questions.
