Earth Day Water Pollution Activity: A Cross Curricular Inquiry Study (Blog Post) We kicked off Earth Day/Week by learning about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, and trying out a water pollution experiment.
This is a lesson plan and handout for a science inquiry on solids, liquids, gases. Students will create a root beer float and see the three states of matter. The lesson plan has a daily target, steps, materials you will need, extensions, videos, and more!
Provide the exploration opportunity in an environment of safety and trust and watch the evolution of problem solving. Little adult input needed..... it's amazing how children love to learn but adults sabatoge it every day.
