Saving our Water

Standard

The boys learned a lot yesterday from the water experiment about the water cycle.  Today I thought that I would expound upon that idea and discuss pollution of our waterways.  (Climate change and global warming aside, water pollution is a real thing.  If you don’t believe me go to any beach or waterway in your town and take a look around.  Everywhere I look I see plastic bottles, knotted up fishing line, and other garbage thrown into the lakes, rivers, or oceans.  It is disgusting, and it is up to us to stop it.  Now I shall exit my soap box….)  So, after they completed Day 13 in their work books, we picked up our journals, and wrote about how we can help care for our water ways.  The boys came up with some excellent ideas on how recycling, or simply picking up after ourselves, can help keep our water ways clean, and enjoyable for future generations. 🙂
