The 2012 World Water Day
Did you know it takes 7000 liters of water to produce ONE steak? ¡Guaca! Or even that it takes 170 liters of water to produce ONE glass of orange juice??
Using our earth's resources wisely is a lesson we all need to teach our children. One of the ways we can do this is with the education materials available on the WWD website. Scroll down and download the games, posters, or other materials they offer for free.
Other excellent materials include these, which I shared last year for World Water Day. Especially take a look at these neat interactive sites on the water cycle: Scholastic's Study Jams and Aprende y diviértete con el agua.
And check out these water-themed books while you're at it!
• Océanos y mares (Masas de Agua) and Lagos y estanques (Masas de Agua) by Cassie Mayer
• El Agua/Water: Arriba, Abajo Y En Todos Lados/ Up, Down, and All Around (Ciencia Asombrosa) (Ciencia Asombrosa (Amazing Science)) by Natalie M. Rosinsky (Also available in English)
Con mucho cariño...
