Walking for Water


This week during our non-fiction read aloud (The Big Thirst, by Charles Fishman), we read "about 1.8 billion people in the world who don't have access to water in their home or yard, but do have access within a kilometer" (p. 13). In learning about how our society tends to take running water for granted, we have decided to do an experiential learning project this Friday.

Students will walk to the Hood River to collect some water in containers which we will bring back to the school. We will reflect on the experience as we learn more about water around the world in the coming weeks.

In helping to prepare for this, please ensure students come to school on Friday with the following:

- good walking shoes

- a backpack (school backpack is fine)

- containers to carry water (nalgenes, old milk containers, dry bags - anything goes!). * Because we will not be purifying the water, make sure to send containers that can be washed in the dishwasher if they are to be reused

Thank you for your support!
