Which sustainability component will your lesson focus on?
The main focus of our Earth Day Presentation is on water conservation. Less than two percent of the Earth's water is fresh water and of that, only one percent is for drinking purposes. In order to prevent the absence of clean drinking water, we must immensly stress the importance of taking action right awat and conserving water for the benefit of the whole country.
What related problem/issue will you present?
Problems we will present revolve around the household daily activities. This way, the students can grasp a better understanding and actually contribute to solving the problem of wasted water. By proposing various daily household activities such as taking showers or baths, brushing your teeth, flushing the toilet, washing dishes, and doing laundry, our ultimate goal is to assist in the creation of each student living a more prominent life revolving around water conservation.
What supporting facts characterize the problem?
Many of the facts we found proved to be very effective in presenting our Earth Day Project. A single flush of the toilet wastes six and a half gallons of water. A five minute shower requires fifteen to twenty-five gallons of water, while a ten minute shower uses fourty gallons. Automatic dishwasher use eight gallons less of water than washing dishes by hand. The average family of four waste about four-hundred gallons of water every day.
What solution will you offer?
Solutions are infinite. However, to help the kids participate, we suggested a handful of simple solutions. Taking showers in less than ten minutes. Throwing away used tissues opposed to flushing it in the toilet. only washing full loads of clothes. And last but deffinitely not the least, notifyinf their parents of any leaking toilets or faucets.
What action or actions do you want people to take as a result of your lesson?
The ultimate purpose of our Earth Day Presention is to help them understand that we cannot go on living much longer carelessly wasting away our water sources like it's not going to effect us. If we do, our fresh water sources will be limited, creating an unnecessary competition for a resource that is not supposed to be depleted. By pushing for a more effective water legislation, we can help the world, one individual at a time, become more ecofriendly and conserve water.

Water Activity 1 During the water conservation activity, the students divided into two groups. One group consisted of less people who had to carry a lighter bucket to the finish line, while the other group, which consisted of more people, had to carry a bucket filled with more water and had to avoid items in their path. The purpose of this activity was to demonstrate that retrieving water from Northern California requires more energy and more resources than retrieving water locally within Southern California.
