Water is a limited natural resource, an essential for life on this planet, but not every community has access to the safe, clean water it needs. In this workshop, elementary teachers will dive into children’s literature surrounding the topic of water scarcity. Water scarcity is defined as the lack of fresh water resources to meet basic water demands. Teachers will experience a STEM based lesson that encourages students to visualize the effects of physical and economic water scarcity. STEM lessons immerse students in hands-on inquiry and open-ended exploration. This workshop will provide the tools you need to help your students visualize the effects of water scarcity in today’s and tomorrow’s world.
