Water is a necessary resource in order for living things, including plants and animals, to survive. We must drink water to stay hydrated and to keep our kidneys flushed out. We use water to cook, bathe, and to live. Without water, we could only live up to a few weeks, if that. Water is a gift. It is the only way for Earth to support humans and all organisms of life.
Since water is essential to our survival, it is only necessary to teach students about the importance of water. We have created lesson plans and other activities, such as poems, word puzzles, and multiple choice quizzes. You can even create your own classroom activities that involve water. A fun activity might include ice cubes. You could explain to students why ice cubes melt. Another interactive activity would be to collect different objects, and have the class guess which objects float or sink in water.
Why not pass out small cups of water to drink during lesson time? We hope you and your class have a fantastic time learning about the importance of water!
Water is incredibly vital to the human existence. We have so many uses for water outside of the basic need for eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day for health. We use water to make energy, cool our machines, and clean ourselves. This set of printables helps students understand the importance of this compound of life.
