Social Justice-Water in Developing Countries

Students explore how water shortage affects everyday life. In this social justice lesson plan, students discuss information about water shortage in Ghana. A water shortage simulation/game is played in which a "Canadian" team starts with a larger water supply than the "Ghana" team. Task cards are used to perform real life water use and the amount of water used is measured and recorded. Conclusions are drawn about how water shortage impacts the quality of life.
