Title of Lesson: Water Usage in the Home
Grade: 5
STANDARDS

that arise from the findings of an investigation.
S2.C01.PO 1. Communicate digitally with others by selecting and using a
variety of appropriate communication tools.
LESSON SUMMARY/OVERVIEW
Students will list all the different ways they use water in the home. They will
realize where water is used/misused the most and find ways to conserve this
precious resource. Teaching children about conservation of water will assist
in creating a sustainable future. If children can realize that their water habits
even in their own home affect the future, we can ensure that we will have
water for generations to come.
OBJECTIVES

Students will collect data on the water usage in their home and
calculate the approximate water usage in their home.

Students will collaborate and discuss possible ways to conserve water


within their home.

Students will create a one minute video and tell of ways water can be

conserved in the home.


ASSESSMENT/EVALUATION
Students will take a water conservation quiz to assess their knowledge on
water conservation.
Students will create a video showing different ways water can be conserved
in the home.

TEACHING PROCEDURES
The teacher will have students implement their data into the water audit
website. http://www.swfwmd.state.fl.us/conservation/thepowerof10/
Then the teacher will place students in groups of 3 in order to have students
share the information they gathered from their personal water audit. Next,
students will come up with a group average for each column on their
personal audit charts. The teacher will display the national averages on the
overhead so that students can compare their average with the national
average for water usage in the US.
