My students are creating a 30 second video based on a water related theme. I would like to create a hotlist of water related websites for them. Example topics I am looking for: water conservation, little known facts on water to educate the public, what's water worth?, protecting our water supply for the future, etc.
I look forward to getting some great resources from this community.
Two water resources from ePals, free to use:
1. Water project: http://www.epals.com/projects/info.aspx?DivID=Water_overview
For the culminating activity, students will create public service announcements that provide information about our world's fresh water issues.
Water Forum for teachers: http://www.epals.com/forums/141.aspx
Water Forum for students: http://www.epals.com/forums/140.aspx
Water project resources: http://www.epals.com/projects/info.aspx?DivID=Water_elements
This is free. Teachers can get a ePals account and can connect with other teachers after getting an approved profile.
If you need student email accounts, ePals will provide them for free.
2. ONE DROP (available in English, Spanish, French language versions)
Blue Lunchbox Challenge: http://www.onedrop.org/calcul/en/index.php
Movies and games about water are on the site as well!
Created by Cirque du Soleil with support from RBC Bank so that teachers can use for free.
