This handout can be given to your students to do a water audit at their home to find out how much water their family uses in a year.
Students will be surprised by the results and it will hopefully guide them to be more aware of their water consumption in the future.
Here is how this package is organized:
Page 3 Collaborative Inquiry Problem Solving exercise to get your students thinking about their water consumption.
Page 4 or 5 Mini-Lesson to help students make an estimation on how much water they consume in one year. Page 4 gives very specific instructions and page 5 gives prompts. You will need a 2L bottle for this lesson.
Pages 5-9 Water Audit step-by-step instructions on how to make a more accurate estimation on how much water they consume in one year. It also has the students reflect on their water consumption.
