You saw in the pictures that as the river flowed through or near
many villages, towns and cities the water changed. The people
used the river water for many different things such as washing
clothes, bathing animals and cleaning utensils. Many of these
activities made the water dirty. The water in the river kept
changing as it flowed through various places. Water in ponds
and lakes can also become dirty due to similar reasons.
From where do you get your drinking water? A river or a
lake? Do you think that like the river in the picture your river
or lake can also be affected?
Try this
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö For this activity you will need to bring certain things from
your home. You will find most of these in the kitchen.
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö 5 or 6 glasses or bottles.
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Salt, sugar, cooking soda, haldi, flour and dal (about half a
teaspoon each).
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Lemon Juice, soap water, sherbet, oil (one spoonful each).
What will you do?
Fill about half of each bottle or glass with water. Make sure
that all have the same amount of water. Now, one by one, put
each of the things in the water. For example – haldi in the first
glass, oil in the second glass, soda in the third glass until you
have one thing in each glass. Mix each thing in the water and
see what happens. Write your observations in the table.
