Lessons for Understanding Our Water Footprint

“Lessons for Understanding Our Water Footprint” will help students recognize that water is a limited resource that needs to be conserved. These lessons will promote conversation about how students’ food choices and shopping habits have a larger impact on their water consumption than they may realize.

These interactive lessons include:

  • Six engaging lessons, three for high school and three for middle school, that provide students with an in-depth understanding of key water issues.
  • A range of teaching strategies, including presentations, videos, activities, assessments, portfolio assignments, technology integration and community extensions.
  • Worksheets that engage students in real-world learning exercises.
  • Standards alignment with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS); Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for ELA/Literacy and Mathematics; Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS); and the Cloud Education for Sustainability (EFS) Standards & Performance Indicators.
