Eighth Graders taught the process of natural cleaning of the water through the water cycle and then the Fifth Graders read a story about a morning in the life of a family. While the story was being read the students had to put items in the drain. Items like coffee grounds, food scraps, and vegetable oil were put in a clean container of water.  Afterwards the students were given a little sample of the water to try using solutions like bleach, alum, and baking soda to clean the water. They also had cheesecloth, paper bags, and cotton balls to use as filters. In the end the students in each group had different results of their water.
