Did you flush the toilet this morning? Did you run water to
brush your teeth or get a drink of water? Did you ever wonder
what happens to the dirty water that goes down the drain in
your house? Now is your chance to find out what happens to the
water when you flush or brush.
In the picture below you see a house on the left a water
treatment facility in the middle and the Potomac River on
the right. Below the picture is a tray of tiles. Each tile
shows one thing that happens to water when it leaves your
house and is cleaned at the water treatment facility. Your
job is to put the tiles in order by placing them in the path
between the house and the treatment facility. (Click on the
tile you want to move and drag it to the place in the path
where you think it should go.) If the tile is in the correct
spot it will stick where you put it. If it’s not in
the right place then it will return to the tile tray at the
bottom of the screen.
If you want more information on any of the pieces click on
each one and you can learn more about the water treatment
process that is shown on the tile.
Are you ready to complete the process?
