Description:

This teaching resource was developed by a K-12 science teacher in the American Physiological Society’s 2008 Frontiers in Physiology Program. For more information on this program, please visit www.frontiersinphys.org. This laboratory experiment teaches students the effects of pollutants on water quality and the impact it has on living organisms through fresh water quality testing of different environmental sources. Students should have some prior knowledge of the properties of water and a basic understanding of freshwater resources before beginning this activity. Upon completion of this activity, students will be able to: know how pollutants affect freshwater sources, interpret the most efficient tests to perform on water samples based on where the water originates, and analyze the affects pollutants have on water quality.
