Students will embark on a journey through the stages of the water cycle as a water droplet. In this activity students will describe the movement of water within the water cycle. They will identify different stages of water as it moves through the cycle. During the tour of EcoHouse students will be exposed to water-saving technology and discover ways to conserve water in the own homes and at school. Students will participate in a race to demonstrate just how precious freshwater is, and why it is important to conserve and protect our natural water bodies from pollution and overuse.
