You Want Me to Drink WHAT? Where Does the Water Go?

  • Peggy Mensik, Science Coach, Humble Elementary School

    DRIVING QUESTION: How can we drink the water flowing off the mall parking lot from rain?

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Throughout the school year, students will be collecting information, investigating and researching where the rainwater goes, and answering the question: where does the water in our school’s water fountains come from?  After collecting water samples of rain water from our local watershed and given the probing questions, “Would you drink this water?” students will start investigating their own questions.  Examples of questions may be: “Where does this water go?" and “Does the rainwater go into the sewers?”
