FreshWaterLIVE: A Distance Learning Adventure
DETAILS COMING SOON . . .
FreshWaterLIVE: A Distance Learning Adventure will bring an appreciation and understanding of fresh water to classrooms in grades 4 to 8 through a FREE webcast, webinars, and online resources. The project will be conducted during the 2014-15 school year and available on the Internet after that date.
Few of us think about the value of water when we turn on the faucet. But everything we do requires water – freshwater. Our bodies, food and energy production, plants, animals and the entire web of life all depend on reliable freshwater. Approximately 97% of the water found on Earth is saltwater leaving only 3% of Earth’s water as freshwater making it a highly valuable but underappreciated resource.
