World Water Monitoring Day (WWMD) Curriculum – Lesson 1: Water Quality Parameters

For grades 9-12

Developed by CFWEP, this curriculum contains three lessons and supporting materials. This lesson covers:

  • The standard criteria for “healthy” water
  • Students will observe various water samples, develop hypotheses regarding the point source of each sample, design and implement an experiment to determine the quality and source of samples, collect and measure data from samples, and record their data
  • Students will sort, classify and categorize water samples based on their observations
  • Students will report the results of their water sample assessment and debate and persuade one another as to the likely point source of each sample, and formulate questions about what relationships or patterns may have affected the water quality of each sample
