The Water Quality Assessment Project is designed to support an integrated science curriculum. Students learn about the chemistry of water and how its molecular structure supports life through its biochemical, physical and environmental roles. The Water Quality Assessment Project takes a community health standpoint. Students investigate the components of water as it interacts with the environment. They determine how these components effect the ecosystems. Finally, students extract case studies about the water body in their area and make recommendations to the community about the current drinking water and water ecosystems. The community health twist in the unit makes the water unit more authentic.Students are accountable in their own learning in order to educate their peers, staff and parents of the school community about a significant part of the NYC environment.
