Fifth graders will be working towards a goal to filter water according to the following criteria:
Be on the lookout for their designs and the success stories of each!
Last year in fourth grade, fifth graders studied environmental engineering, focusing on cleaning up an oil spill. This year, their focus is still on water, but cleaning it in an entirely different way. They'll quickly see how many parts of the world do not have access to quality drinking water and how cleaning it can actually be a possibility.
Consider reducing your impact on the environment by drinking from the tap. We've got access to safe drinking water, so why not drink it!?!?
