Challenge your young environmentalists to prove how much water they can conserve while engaging in a wet, watery task. They discuss how much water is used during daily activities, such as showering or doing the dishes. Then, in teams, they attempt to complete a series of tasks using only two liters of water. The team with the most water left over wins the challenge. This is a fantastic way to help learners think like conservationists, it also fosters a deeper understanding of the very real water crisis.
Students examine the effectiveness of road safety organizations.
