Product Details

Introduce students to air and water pollutants using this comprehensive, hands-on kit. Students will gain a deeper understanding of air quality by performing valuable experiments to detect smoke, particulate materials and acidic gases in air. Safe and easy tablet-type tests are used to explore critical water factors, such as pH, phosphate and ammonia. Kit includes detailed background information, complete instructions and reproducible student handouts.

Complete for 30 students working in pairs.

Performance Expectations

MS-ESS3-3. Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment.
HS-ESS2-2. Analyze geoscience data to make the claim that one change to Earth’s surface can create feedbacks that cause changes to other Earth systems.
HS-ESS2-5. Plan and conduct an investigation of the properties of water and its effects on Earth materials and surface processes.
HS-ESS3-6. Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity.
