World Water Day

In honor of World Water Day, CMSE students worked with 23 different schools around the world to test and compare water quality.  We developed "I can" statements to share how we would conserve water and stop water pollution.  Here are some of their thoughts.

"Our World Water Day Project was so much FUN! We went through some really cool stations with some really cool technology, thanks parents for donating money! We got to look at lake water near us, and we actually found a Protist, which is a one cell organism. It was so cool to see microscopic bugs, and organisms in the water, but it was also kind of gross! Whenever you accidentally drink some of the lake water, that is going in your mouth!"
- Emily H.

"Our world is in danger of losing our fresh supply of clean water. It is projected that we will lose all our water in the next decade. We have to stop and take action. Coppell Middle School 7th grade science students are interacting with many other schools across the earth to help save our water for future generations. We have been testing lake water and also learning new and exciting ways to preserve and purify our water."
- Shriya D. and Adrianna B.

We shared our learning with others using an app called FlipGrid. See everyone's responses here!
