Water in My Life

This lesson introduces the unit by calling attention to the importance of water in daily life. It also establishes schema for learning about water, the water cycle, and the need to conserve water. Students chart their water usage over a one-day period and compare their water use to a classmate’s, write about their water usage and how it might change in a drought, and create a set of water vocabulary flash cards to begin developing a working vocabulary of water-related words that they continue adding to throughout this unit.
