Water Pollution

Our Water Pollution lesson plan teaches students about water pollution, including its causes, how it can be prevented, and the effects it has on the environment.

Category: Tags: ,

Our Water Pollution lesson plan introduces students to water pollution, with a summary related to overall pollution. Students see bodies of water as they travel, or perhaps locally, and the water may appear to be clean and safe, but sometimes pollutants change the water. During this lesson, students are asked to work creatively and with a partner to create a water pollution prevention poster, including images and facts to support their anti-pollution message; they are then asked to answer questions about water pollution based on the lesson material. Students are also asked to match given information to the correct type of water pollution, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define and describe water pollution, identify causes, and list ways to prevent water pollution.

    Thank you

    I just wish you might have some kid books that you would recommend to go along with this lesson. It's hard to do the internet here where we live so checking the online sources isn't really an option for us. Other than that my child enjoyed learning about all the ways water gets polluted.
