Interactive Activities For Teaching About Drought

(hold on a minute while I get a drink of water…I feel thirsty just thinking about this subject!)

Helping our students understand drought, the tough decisions that must be made, and perhaps most importantly, what WE can all do to be part of the solution is the focus of these activities found in various Project WILD guides.

 

Project WILD K-12 guide

Rainfall and the Forest is an excellent activity to visually see rainfall effects and if you do it for a period of time you can see climate change and the effect.

 

High School Science and Civic guide

Where Does Water Run which covers water run-off and water storage systems

Can Water get Through This covers the concept of ground water, and the use of wells.

In the Project WILD Aquatic Guide

Water Works addresses water consumption and who gets water when it is in short supply.

Conservation Messaging helps students create messages on conservation related issues…such as how to behave during a drought.
