Product Description
Most of us don’t give water a second thought. Yet, around the world, more than one in nine people lack access to safe water, and nearly 840, 000 people die from water related diseases every year. And even in the United States, water pollution is a huge issue. This lesson will have students explore these pressing issues, along with the overall state of the world’s fresh water. In pairs, or as a class, students will critically read the article ‘Water, Water Everywhere’; an insightful and informative piece. Student’s analytical thought will be encouraged as they will be asked to brainstorm possible solutions, and provide persuasive supporting details. The lesson lends itself well to a unit on economics, global studies, geography, and/or critical reading.

- Article “Water, Water, Everywhere?” By the Turning Point Project,
et al.
- 1 Student Handout
- 1 World Map
