Teaching Kids About Water Conservation

The environment in which we reside is comprised of resources that we use on a regular basis. Environmental resources such as oil, energy, air and water are all resources which have limited supplies and provides us with questions about conserving these resources. 

While it would appear to the average person that these resources should have an unlimited supply, this is not the case. Environmentalists are concerned about all of these resources and unless we watch and ensure that we use them properly, they will not be available when we need them.

In particular, water conservation is an area of concern. Not only is the cleanliness of the water at issue, but the amount of water that we need is a concern. To ensure that we have a sufficient amount of water available, we need to teach and practice good water conservation techniques. We have assembled a collection of resources to learn about water conservation and to help teach children.
