Our Water, Water Everywhere lesson plan introduces students to water, its importance for life, and other aspects of water on Earth, including the sources of water. The lesson briefly reviews the water cycle, but this lesson may be used in conjunction with a water cycle lesson. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to create a summary of all the water they use during a typical day and answer questions such as: Why is water being used? When is it being used? What is it being used for? in order to get them to think more deeply about their water usage and how important it is to their everyday lives. Students are also asked to match terms with their definitions in order to demonstrate that they understand the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define water, list the sources of water, and explain the importance of water for life.
