Cherishing the Water of Life

Students work in small groups to brainstorm a list of all creatures, plants, natural, and artificial processes that use or depend on fresh water. The class views an aquarium filled with water representing all the water in the world. The teacher removes ever decreasing amounts to illustrate the amount of water available for human use. Students research ways to conserve water.

Lesson Planet is a great portal that has given me a lot of great ideas for topics for which I have less preparation, such as physical science.
