The Effect Pollution has on our Environment

Poplar House School students recently studied the effect pollution has on our environment. They studied, air pollution, land pollution and water pollution.

Students then had to work together on a project to see if there were ways to reverse water pollution.

They began with a tub of dirty water that had soil and plastic mixed into it and then had to decide to how get the water as clear as possible again.

The students used tongues to take out the plastic and then made a filter using a plastic bottle, stones and cotton wool balls. They then poured the dirty water through it a number of times while also changing the cotton wool. The water by the end was nearly clear again.

The students then wrote up what they had discovered in an evaluation.
