Water You Wearing

Description

Students will take part in a fashion show where the actural amount of water used to make some common clothing items is discussed.

Students will continue to make connections between energy, food, and/or clothing consumption and water use.

Humans consume hundreds of thousands of litres of water that is embedded in our clothing. This water use also contributes to our overall water consumption, or water footprint, and is part of virtual water.

Expectations

A variety of grade levels and expectations can be addressed.

This activity is part of the Water Conservation Theme.
