Exploring Our Growing Need for Water

Pupils explore the amount of water people use in agriculture and for personal use. They compare water usage for various crops to that of raising animals before considering solutions for increased access to safe drinking water worldwide. The two-day instructional activity works as the third in a 10-part series on Fresh Solutions.
