Pollution Soup

Posted by on December 10, 2008 in Green Schools | 0 comments

Yesterday, Rebecca and Marijanna did a water lesson at Laurel Dell. During the lesson, we do an activity we call “pollution soup.” We show the students a bottle of clean water and then, one at a time, start putting “pollutants” into the bottle of water — like soapy water symbolizing run-off from washing a car and raisins symbolizing dog poop. Then we ask the students to write a story about how the pollutant could have gotten into the water. We thought we’d share this cute story from a 4th grader at Laurel Dell.
