algae and pollution experiment with household stuff for studying ecology

Pond Ecology - Try this algae and pollution experiment with your kids when you're studying ecology. All you need is pond water, jars, and some pollutants to add to it.

Oh my goodness...I am in LOVE with this experiment idea!!!!! I can't wait until Earth Day and our Lorax unit!!!! :-)

Possible school experiment to show importance of wetlands/riparian zones! This shows the importance of plants in our soil. Plants like trees and grasses help purify ground water. Without them the ground water gets polluted and harder to clean and drink.

An experiment to teach middle school students about environmental science and how oil spills harm wildlife by charting the effects of applying water, oil, and soap to a feather.

Show students the science behind composting with this hands-on "compost in a bottle" experiment

Compare compost made in sunlight and cupboards, with and without worms! Every Bed of Roses: Compost in a Bottle {Science Experiment}

This environmental science lesson and activity is a great introduction to population growth, exponential growth, limiting factors, and carrying capacity. Perfect for an Earth Day lesson!

Environmental Science Lesson & Lab- Population Growth

This environmental science lesson and activity is a great introduction to population growth, exponential growth, limiting factors, and carrying capacity. This lesson is part of my Environmental Science: Biosphere Bundle.

Experiment ~ Can You Undo Water Pollution?    In this experiment the kids learned just how hard it is to undo water pollution.    We grabbed a bucket of clean water, some household trash, vegetable oil (to stand for toxic oil spills), tongs, and a strainer.

My Mom did this with her AP Environmental Science kids - it was a hit!

Properties Of Water

Too much trash! This Earth Day, teach conservation by learning about where our trash goes and stays...the landfill! Build a model with your kids and students to teach environmental science and mindfulness. Fun science, STEM and STEAM activities, lessons and ideas for kids, teachers and parents.
