School Curriculum on Fixing Leaks and Water Efficiency

Fixing Leaks Can Be Elementary, My Dear Watson

Learning about water efficiency can be as easy as 1-2-3 with WaterSense's recently released Fix a Leak Week curriculum by EPA's WaterSense water conservation program.

WaterSense has developed lessons for grades 3 through 5 that focus on saving water through finding leaks.

Nationwide more than 1 trillion gallons of water leak from U.S. homes each year. In fact, the average home can waste 11,000 gallons of water per year, enough to fill a backyard swimming pool. But students can learn about saving water and conduct fun science experiments by sleuthing out leaks where they live and helping parents find ways to fix them.

The free resources offer step-by-step instructions for teachers and include ready-made worksheets for students. Parents and water conservation outreach coordinators may also find these materials and a corresponding family pledge to save water useful.

While the curriculum is designed to be taught during Fix a Leak Week (March 15-21, 2010), the concepts are timeless and worthy of teaching any time of the year. Learn more about Fix a Leak Week 2010 and the teacher's curriculum.
