As we begin our new unit of study in 2nd grade we’d like your help. If possible can you answer a few questions so that we can compare water usage around the world.
- Do you drink tap water in your country/town/city?
- Do you clean it by boiling or filtering it?
- What ways do you use water in one day?
- Is water scarce or abundant where you live?
- Is it free?
- If not, how expensive is it?
- What ways do you have of conserving water?
- Where does your water come from?
- Do you have water fountains at your school to drink from?
- Do people in your country buy bottled water?
- Add anything else that might help us answer our compelling questions
Why is water important around the world and what can I do to help ensure everyone has clean water? How can I make a difference?
