Water is the single most valuable resource essential for
life on Earth, yet is subject to increasing scarcity, pollutants, and overuse.
The Tapwater Tour curriculum makes the real-world connection between the
phenomena explored in the lesson and actual hands-on laboratory activities that
students experience while revealing the quality of their own tap water. Group
discussions, activities, and analysis of class data provide opportunities for
teamwork, collaboration, and reflection.
1. Simple hands-on methods that students can easily and safely perform in the classroom, or as teacher demonstrations for distance learning, will be presented; 2. Examples of phenomena to engage students in water quality testing will be given; and 3. Ideas for adapting lessons to suit student audience/grade levels/abilities will be shared.
