Earth’s water is ranked in volume as follows: oceans, glaciers and ice caps, underground water, and freshwater. Students in Mrs. Clemens’s science lab learned that very little of Earth’s water is fresh water (only 3% of the water on Earth’s surface is fresh; the remaining 97% resides in the ocean). Therefore, conservation is essential.
Students shared how they could do their part conserving water by:
- Take a shower instead of a bath.
- Take short showers.
- Turn off the water when you brush your teeth; Fascinating fact: This can save 200 gallons of water per month!
- Reuse towels.
