All the Water in the World

In a cross-curricular lesson linking math and science, examine the percentages of earth's water supply with your elementary kids using pasta or dixie cups of water. Younger learners focus on identifying local water sources on the globe or a map, then making a pie chart of the earth's water, while older kids graph the data on a bar graph after performing a brief simulation representing the distribution of earth's water.
