How Much Water Do You Use?

Incorporate reading strategies, math, research, and the scientific method into one lesson about water conservation. After reading a story about a landlady trying to determine how many people are living in an apartment, learners develop a hypothesis about the number of residents in the apartment then collect data about the water usage in their own homes; that information is used to test the hypothesis. After sharing a variety of conclusions, the class learns simple tips to save water.
