Description

This lesson was taught to a 5th grade class in Chico, Ca. The students had previously learned about the water cycle and were familiar with the water sources on Earth. The goal of this unit was to have students to be able to graph and explain the distribution of water on Earth.  Students would become aware of the significant difference in the amount of salt water vs. fresh water on Earth.
