Drop by Drop...

Looking for a real-world project idea? Consider this: Around the world, one in five people lack access to clean, safe drinking water. Children, especially, are at risk of water-related diseases. Imagine the many directions you could go with a global project that challenges your students to make sense of world water data, develop a water-awareness campaign built with Web 2.0 tools, or engineer their own solution to the global water shortage. (To get their imaginations "bubbling," just introduce them to the Play Pump--a well powered by a merry-go-round that's pumping clean water to children across Africa.) World Water Day is coming up on March 22. Will your students be taking part? Share your projects with us.
