    Grade 2 Inquiry Unit

    Water Works! — How can we help everyone to have clean water?

    Big Ideas

    • pollution
    • consumption equity
    Curriculum Connections
    • science (Earth and space)
    • character development (citizenship)
    • social studies (life systems)

    The World Water Day video encourages viewers to think about the importance of water and why people celebrate this day. It outlines how water is used for multiple purposes to sustain life for all living creatures. The video illustrates the fact that not everyone has access to clean water. It is just over one minute in length.
