water pollution project made by grade 3 students with recycle material.
K-ESS3-3 = "Communicate solutions that will reduce the impact of humans on the land, water, air, and/or other living things in the local environment."
Each group will be given a bucket of water and "garbage."
Once they have destroyed their water, they will need to try and fix it.
They will need to discuss some possible solutions on how they can reduce the amount of garbage that gets into our water.
Experiment ~ Can You Undo Water Pollution?
We grabbed a bucket of clean water, some household trash, vegetable oil (to stand for toxic oil spills), tongs, and a strainer.
Challenge your students to an oil spill clean-up!
Read on for a STEM challenge that teaches environmental consciousness, problem solving, and team work along with extension math problems that use measurement, percentages, and volume calculations.
Our students loved this activity, and we think yours will too!
