Lesson Overview:

In this lesson, students will use information about the connection between changes in biodiversity and changes in water quality to articulate criteria and constraints for a water filter design. They will answer the driving question: What factors are considered when designing a water filter in response to a change in biodiversity that affects ecosystem services?
