When you brush your teeth do you leave the tap running? Students will investigate everyday activities that require water, but how much water do they really need? Find out how we can all help conserve water by the choices we make.

Activity Description

Students will simulate brushing their teeth using two methods and determine the amount of water used for each method. Method 1: Leave tap running, Method 2: Turn tap off while brushing.
