Ensuring Clean and Abundant Water

Grade levels: 6th, Environmental Science

Ensuring Clean and Abundant Water 

We know that clean, healthy water is necessary for all living things on earth. It is also important to have the right amount of water. Businesses need water for making products. We need water for drinking, cooking, bathing, and fun activities like swimming. We also need water for things we seldom think about. 

This section includes the “Water Managers” lesson plan where students will:

  1. Connect our water supply to local streams and the living things in them. 
  2. Propose a strategy to solve a particular problem generated by societal needs and wants. 
  3. Distinguish between the intended benefits and the unintended consequences of a new technology.
