Water Works

Completed

Description

Students recorded their water use for 2 days. On the first day, they were not aware of the challenge, and simply recorded the approximate amount of water they used. The next day, they were asked to be considerate of the amount of water they used, and make choices to conserve water. For example, one student recognized they did not need to run their dishwasher when it was not full and others made a commitment to keep their showers under 5 minutes. Students recorded their answers via google form to discover the amount of liters saved. On average students conserved 221 Liters of water, multiped by 24 = 5306 L
