To prepare for the PSA project in Unit 2, have students understand the development of an antibiotic resistant bacteria with these lab simulations: What kills germs? from Glencoe and Why do penicillin and other antibiotics become less useful over time? from Houghton Mifflin.
In Unit 3, students record the chemical and physical changes of the stormwater solution, including the sedimentation process, to calculate the total dissolved solids with the Water Quality with Vernier lab.
Filtration Investigation from TryEngineering is a great way to have students examine the effectiveness of different filtration media and engineer a better water filter for a community in need of clean water.
