Natures Water Filter

In this lesson, students learn more about how the wetland plays a role in maintaining healthy marine environments. Through participation in a lab simulation that will demonstrate how water filtration occurs in a wetland, students will discover why it is important to preserve our wetlands. The lesson encourages students to work cooperatively in small groups to conduct the fi ltration simulation and prepare a lab report.
