Sunset Middle School opened their doors for Mrs. Hannapel's fourth graders. Both schools were reading A Long Walk to Water, so decided to collaborate on a shared experience. Students were split up among a dozen activities set up around the room. Middle schoolers led learning stations, based on topics of sanitation, clean drinking water, filtration, water cycle/water facts, and Salva's Water for South Sudan Foundation.
Indian Peaks students were exposed to several hands-on activities including:~Presentation on places that need clean water and making a water filter~Large scale model of different forms of sanitation with scale models of bacteria & diseases (all in a fish tank)~Salva's Water for South Sudan background and game with terms they learned~Water filtration experiment~Water cycle script and role-playing~Observation/comparison with samples of clean and dirty water~Slide show on how water filtration works with demo kit from City of Longmont The closing activity included a student-produced digital Jeopardy game using questions form all the stations.
