Drinking Water Curriculum for 8th Graders

Too often, we take safe drinking water for granted.  We don’t think enough about where it comes from or what’s in it, even though clean drinking water is fundamental to life itself.  Educating ourselves and the next generation of water advocates is an important step towards ensuring that our water is safe to drink.

The National Association of Biology Teachers has created a curriculum for Eighth Graders that engages students in developing informed and critical opinions about water quality and water treatment methods.

This curriculum is fairly simple, flexible, and inexpensive, and could be tailored for use in a classroom or a summer camp.  Download here and find this specific curriculum on pages 56-62 of the file.
