Explore how lack of access to water impacts peoples' lives in poor countries. Through text reading and discussion, middle schoolers are presented with the story of a young girl who lives and functions with limited water resources. They write a paragraph that summarizes the article and includes their own personal reflection. Consider also asking learners how they can reduce their own water usage and discuss why this is important.
Students learn about the water cycle and the uses of water. In this water supply activity, students view a chart about the distribution of Earth's water supply. Students complete an activity to demonstrate how much of the earth's water supply is actually used. Students describe the water cycle, how families can conserve water at home and discuss why water is important.
A large variety of topics are given in this PowerPoint about water. Some come from a scientific point of view, some regarding recreation, some for domestic use, and others from hydroelectricity. A teacher could choose to use this presentation after studying the chemistry of water, or after studying a social studies topic about conservation of water.
Students examine types of aquifers and make a model landfill. In this water usage lesson, students determine the difference between confined and unconfined aquifers. They build a model landfill, observe it for two weeks, and analyze what type of influence it has on the water supply. They complete a map that shows an aquifer in Kansas.
