Student Teacher

Description

Overview:
Through relevant videos, connections to young adult literature, and hands-on exploration, students are introduced to the challenge of providing clean water and sanitation through a global lens.Additionally, students go on a “water walk” to experience the challenges that some people face each day as they locate and collect clean water.The goal of the unit is to ground the activities in a culture of empathy. Furthermore, students participate in an engineering design challenge in which they build a water filter that is both cost-efficient and effective in changing the pH and turbidity of the water samples.Finally, students have the opportunity to share their learning with peers and local experts through a sales presentation as they pitch their device and findings.Standards:CCSS English Language Arts (Grade 7)CCSS Math (Grade 7)Ohio Standards for Science (Grade 7)
