Environment: Water & Air

The introduction to the lesson mentions a sailor's limited capacity to store drinking water on his ship. Pupils then set up an overnight experiment to remove freshwater from salt water by distillation. There is a math and map activity to follow. Finally, learners develop a survey for collecting information from their families about water use.   The math and map activity seems only weakly related to the topic of freshwater, but the activity would be a strong addition to your water curriculum.

I just completed my student teaching in Newark New Jersey. Creating unit plans became a breeze once I joined Lesson Planet. There was a plethora of resources for every CCSS. Thank you. I had veteran teachers asking me where did I get my resources. I am now teaching at my cooperative school. Yeah!!!!!!!!!
