How Do We Use Water?

Author(s): Nancy P. Moreno, PhD, Barbara Z. Tharp, MS, and Judith Dresden, MS.

Let's Get Started

This activity will require at least two class periods. On Day One, students will take their journal sheets home and record their own water usage. Classroom activities on Day Two may be conducted with the whole class, or with students separated into groups.

Have students record all the ways they use water over an approximate 24-hour period of time. They might start recording their water usage from the moment they leave the classroom until the moment they return the next day, or from the time they arrive home until the time they leave home the next morning. Make sure students record only their own water usage.
