Teach students how to save water by comparing photographs of a girl brushing her teeth with the water on and the girl turning the water off. Students will also decide if it is better to take a bath or a shower to save water.
The teacher shows the students the two photographs in question #1. The first photograph has a girl turning off the water when she is brushing her teeth and the second photograph has the water running when the girl is brushing her teeth. The class has a discussion on which is the best way to save water. The students are asked to circle the photograph which is the best way to save water and put an X on the photograph that shows how water is wasted.
The teacher shows the students the two pictures in question #2. The first picture is a bathtub and the second picture is a shower. The class has a discussion on which is the best way to save water. The students are asked to circle the picture which is the best way to save water and put an X on the picture that shows how water is wasted.
At the end of the lessons, students will receive a certificate. They promise how they are going to conserve water.
This free lesson was 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. We wanted to teach kindergarten and first grade students how to save water.
As part of our First Lego League Robotics Tournament, we would like to find out how many students will be using our lesson 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 can teach people how to conserve water around the world one class and one student at a time.
Thank you for using our free lesson in your classroom,
