This fresh resource explores the world's fresh water: where it can be found, and how humans use it. You might be surprised at the variety of domestic uses! Short, but sweet, this feature can be followed by a class discussion using the provided Think questions. Alternatively, you can assign the viewing and answering of questions as homework when studying a unit on water. It would make a stimulating introduction to a research report on Earth's water supply.
Students identify a variety of human activities that can pollute our water sources. They conduct experiments to determine water quality, describe their local community's impact on water resources and explore ways in which to protect and conserve water supplies.
In this parts of the water cycle and California's water supply instructional activity, students read about the water cycle and water supply, then write a story about the history of their drinking water.
If 71% of our planet is covered with water, why do we need to bother conserving water? Find out with these activities designed for middle and high school environmental scientists. From reading articles to solving crossword puzzles, to building their own desalination devices, a variety of learning styles are addressed, while showing kids the importance of protecting one of Earth's most valuable natural resources. Although the activities are Florida-focused, water conservation is a global issue, so either during or after completing the lesson, you may wish to talk about water conservation in your own region.
