"Lessons for Understanding Our Water Footprint" will help students recognize that water is a limited resource that needs to be conserved. These free lessons will promote conversation about direct and indirect (virtual) water use, how students’ food choices and shopping habits have a larger impact on their water consumption than they may realize, and ways to reduce their water footprint as an individual and as a campus. There are six engaging lessons, three for high school and three for middle school, that provide students with an in-depth understanding of key water issues.
