October 31st in Science Part 3
Every year, when I get to Module 5 in Exploring Creation with Physical Science by Dr. Jay Wile, as an outside activity I have the students bring in a jar of water from a local body of water - a pond, creek, lake, etc. We test for water pollution. Most of Birmingham's water is very good. Nearby my house is a small
pond though that seems to stay polluted so I always stop and get a jar of
water myself so we'll have at least one jar of "bad" water. (This really
speaks well of Birmingham area water!). Wednesday morning on the way to
class I stopped. The bird seemed to be frozen in place - he was watching for
a fish breakfast. I had to get a photo. I got the close up - then the spread
of the pond around and you see how "man" has so little thought of his
environment. It's a shame!
And the water was nasty.
