Clean Enough to Drink

(introduces the children to the context or problem and asks them to help solve it.)
We are running out of clean drinking water! Our water ways are filled with pollution,
rubbish and chemicals that we cannot drink.

97.5% of the earths water is our salt water oceans which we cannot drink.
If we don’t do something soon we will run out of clean drinking water quicker than we expected.

Your Task:
It is our job to clean our water ways! You are required to create a filtration system to remove the pollution
and chemicals from our water ways, or to filter and clean the salt from our ocean waters. This filtration
system must make the water clean enough to drink.
1. In partners you will research water filtrations systems that we have present today
2. Draw at least 3 design ideas.
3. Choose 1 design, illustrate it clearly and detailed, label your design appropriately.
4. Using recycled material- create a model of your design.
5. Complete a small presentation to the task, displaying and explaining your design to the class and how
it will provide us with clean drinking water.
