Water Filtration Experiment

Water Filtration

We learned about wastewater treatment.

filtration:Watter is filtered through gravel and sand to clean any small parts of dirt.

Objective:To use a filtering method to clean dirty water.

Prediction:I predict that both filters will clean the water.

Equipment:Plastic bottle and scissors or jar and funnel,dirty water,filter paper,stones and gravel.


  1. Cut the bottle into a jar and funnel and position as per the diagram below.
  2. Fold the filter paper in half and than divide it so that there are three pieces and one piece the other side.
  3. Dampen the edges of the filter paper.

4. Poor in half of the watter and record what happened

5.  The same process using stones and gravel and sand and compare the defence.

results: Both filters made the water cleeaner but the filter  paper worked better.

Conclusion:We learned that dirt can be removed  from water by filters.
