|What Water Would You Drink?|
This is a hands-on activity that fosters decision-making skills and emphasizes scientific principles such as objectivity and replication. It is designed to show that pollutants are not always obvious and not all contaminants pose a health risk. Students will learn that some contaminants can be detected by sight, smell, or taste and that others are not detectable except with sophisticated analytical equipment. They will also understand the difference between pollutants that make water unappealing and those that make it unhealthy or unsafe. This activity works well in an informal outdoor setting or in a classroom.
