Water, Water, Everywhere ~ or is there?

Last week we started a new inquiry unit on water!  When we start a new unit of learning we always like to start with what we think we know about that topic. Since we just finished a unit on matter it was exciting to see some of our learning show up here!  Take a look at all the things we think we know already.

 Wow!  We sure know a lot!  After sharing our thinking about what we know we watched a short video called "World Water Day."  It showed lots of different images of people using water.  Then we looked at some books and shared our ideas of how people use water.

A summary of our thinking on how we use water!

After that, Mrs Betts asked us if we thought everyone had access to clean water.  This graph shows our thinking . . . .

Hmmm. . . We know that water is essential to all living things and that we all need water to survive but not everyone has access to clean water so this made us wonder . . . . "How can we help everyone have access to clean water?"   Check back to see what we find out!
