Middle School Science Minute

In the Spring Edition of "Green Teacher," Emily Harris wrote an article entitled, "Fostering
Students' Water Wisdom." The purpose of the article was to bring water awareness into the
classroom and contribute to a better global future.
She says that teachers play a vital role in helping foster an early appreciation of this most
precious resource. For this reason, WaterCan developed curriculum resources in both English

She then goes on to share one of her favorite lesson plans for 5th - 6th grade students, entitled
"Water Alive!" This is a research based activity designed to help generate an understanding
about the universal dependence on water, through the "eyes" of an African animal.
