If you are teaching about environmental issues, there is a lot of information for students to process. This non-prep lesson focuses on water pollution. Children will be able to learn about what water pollution is and the important role it plays in climate change. The slides are colorful and full of information. It's a useful addition to any unit of work on climate change or the environment. There are duplicates of some slides depending on whether you prefer to use U.S. English or British English, simply delete the slide that contains the spelling that is not applicable to you. You can pick and chose what to teach without hours of lesson prep! Also included are slides which provide foundational knowledge about types of water bodies. There are opportunities for children to answer questions, both structured and unstructured, to express their views and to do some research (under the supervision of a responsible adult if they are learning from home). This is a useful resource for distance learning, whole class teaching or for instruction in small groups using a device. Worksheets for follow up work are also included. The Google Slides ™.presentation link is included.
