Engineering Design Cycle Reflection:
Students will reflect about what they did as they worked through each part of the engineering design cycle.

Water Filter Report:
Students will complete a one-page report detailing their findings and conclusion.

Grading Rubric:
The grading rubric allows teachers to assess how students used and applied their knowledge of water filtration to explain how their filter was created and helps cleanse greywater for reuse.
