This WebQuest is designed to give the students resources that will teach them to care about their planet by practicing water conservation through a problem-solution structure.

Introduction

Is water really important?  Is such a simple liquid all that vital?  Imagine with me what it would be like to have a day without water.  What would you drink? How would you clean yourself? In what would you swim?  You see, water is very large part of our lives.  In fact, 57% to 75% of your body is made out of it.  But, did you know that 1.4 billion people don't have clean drinking water? In a world of 6.8 billion people, 20.59% don't have clean drinking water.  Obviously water is a huge part of our daily lives and without it you cannot live.  So, how can you help to conserve the water and keep it clean? How could we make clean water accessible in other nations?
