About This Lesson

Access Free Lesson Plan Here: Clean Water and Sanitation

In this lesson, students further their knowledge of redox titrations while examining the pressures that contamination and climate change put on access to clean water.

Step 1 - Inquire: Students observe a field scientist testing the dissolved oxygen content of the Hudson River and generate questions. 

Step 2 - Investigate: Students apply the Winkler Method as a tool for assessing the health of bodies of water and identify the stresses placed on water sources by climate change. 

Step 3 - Inspire: Students explore UN Sustainable Development Goal #6 and consider what steps they can take to protect the drinking water in their communities.

Learning Outcomes

  • Students will be able to explain the link between climate change and access to clean water.
  • Students will be able to use the Winkler Method to evaluate biochemical oxygen demand (BOD).
  • Students will be able to identify concrete steps they can take to protect access to water.

Use mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction.
Integrate multiple sources of information presented in diverse formats and media (e.g., visually, quantitatively, orally) in order to make informed decisions and solve problems, evaluating the credibility and accuracy of each source and noting any discrepancies among the data.
