Operation Water Drop - Testing the Water We Drink (Elementary Teacher's Guide)

Safe Drinking Water Foundation

Conservation, Water, Grade 5, Grade 6, Grade 7, Grade 8

Elementary teachers can demonstrate eight scientific tests on their own community drinking water: Alkalinity, Ammonia, Colour, Residual Chlorine, Copper, pH, Sulphate and Total Hardness. The students learn the basic need for testing their water to avoid health concerns and how bugs can grow in their water. Elementary teachers can compare the results of their own community drinking water to the Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality, and to U.S. and European Drinking Water Regulations.
