Reviewer Comments:

The lesson is aligned to the Common Core State Standards and to state learning standards in a number of Great Lakes-surrounding states. In this well-designed lesson, late elementary through middle school students will study the types and origins of harmful bacteria that contribute to beach pollution, culminating with the writing of a persuasive essay applying their newfound knowledge. This activity includes background information, a procedure, student handouts, answer keys, and wrap-up suggestions and could be implemented immediately into the classroom.
