Module 4:

After completing this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe the chemical and molecular properties of pure water and how they relate to water in the environment (e.g. the water cycle);
  • Plan and conduct basic water quality monitoring using World Water Monitoring Day field kits in a sound scientific method to assess water quality;
  • Communicate the results of your monitoring, draw conclusions from data and make predictions about how water quality might respond to different environmental and human effects;
  • Integrate water quality content and monitoring into site study and other modules;
  • Communicate the importance of water quality monitoring and its role in environmental stewardship.

Upon completing this module, you will have all the information and tools you need to create your own activities and lesson plans. Activities and lessons plans that you can create based on the material covered in this module are also aligned to Montana state educational standards.
