The unit starts with activities dealing with the scientific method and how they relate to our everyday life. From there we review properties of matter and finally proceed to the topic of “Environmental Chemistry.” Using CEPUP modules we investigate pollution problems in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and lithosphere.
The unit is designed to motivate students to think about the environment and the part they play in keeping it and making it a place for future generations.
(Recommended for Science classes, Grade 8)
