Water Pollution

4th October 2022

For Giffnock Library’s children’s event about water pollution, we explored facts in Giffnock’s junior non-fiction books.

From here we made a big display wall naming different pollutants, alongside the things we could do to actively protect the environment.

Finally, we built a water filter together, taking it in turns to carefully layer charcoal, sand and pebbles into a cheese cloth. We poured in some dirty water and as it was cleansed by these natural materials we watched it come out of the filter clear!
