After reading Oil Spill, by Melvin Berger, Ozone students polluted a bucket of water with dirt, oil, and trash, They were then challenged to clean the water and make it potable. Children pulled out trash, tested a variety of homemade water filters, and experienced several spills. Monica then took a sip of the cleaned water. She hasn’t gotten sick yet, so it looks like students were successful.
Despite the success, students learned that it is very difficult to clean just a small amount of water, so we’re better off just not polluting it.
