Students read the informational article in which five water experts were contacted and asked to state what they believed were the best ways to save water.
Students respond to seven comprehension questions. The students complete a table and list three ways to save water next to the water experts' names. The students then use the information from the table to write an essay comparing and contrasting the similarities and the differences between the water experts’ ways to conserve water.
At the end of the lessons, students will receive a certificate as they promise how they are going to conserve water. The students will also write the names of the people who they have taught how to save water.
We have included vocabulary cards to help students understand difficult words from the informational article.
These free lessons were created by members of Robot-O-Build, our school’s robotics team. We are competing in the First Lego League Tournament. The theme of this year’s competition is Hydro Dynamics. As part of our First Lego League Robotics Tournament, we would like to find out how many students will be using our lessons and where their school is located. Please go to http://robot-o-build.blogspot.com/2017/05/please-help-us-find-out-how-many.html
and complete the questionnaire. With education, hopefully we will be able to teach one class and one student at a time, how to conserve water.
Special thanks to Michael D. Cahn, James Cloern, Madelyn Glickfeld, Kaitlin Hannon, and Tom Tait for making this free lesson possible and for helping us make an impact on this world.
Thank you for using our free lesson in your classroom,
