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 and French which can be freely downloaded from the "Water Wisdom Portal" at: http://www.watercan.com/students 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.
