Water quality is more than meets the eye. Some of its properties are invisible. Teachers using this module will focus on measurable properties of water: mass, volume, and concentration; temperature; dissolved oxygen; pH; and nitrates; and their effects on water quality. Each of these properties is the subject of a lesson plan. The lesson plans include an introduction, lesson objectives, a pre-test, ... Full description.

Students investigate the importance of water historically and in their daily lives and examine the nature of water as a limited resource. Working in groups, they will list the various uses of water, discuss why water is a limited resource, research technological systems that are intended to use water as productively as possible, and create "How It Works" posters for presentation to the class. The ... Full description.

As part of this classroom activity, students will record and graph temperature data to learn about the search for water on Mars. Using models of frozen and ice-free "soils" constructed from readily available materials (a list is provided), they will examine (by periodically measuring temperature and graphing the results) how the ice content of the Martian soil affects the rate at which a warm probe ...
