|Down the Drain: How Much Water Do You Use?|
This Internet-based collaborative project will allow students to share information about water usage with other students from around the country and the world. Based on data collected by their household members and their classmates, students will determine the average amount of water used by one person in a day. They will compare this to the average amount of water used per person per day in other parts of the world. After collecting data and calculating the results, students will develop a hypothesis, make a prediction, do the experiment, and communicate their results. The site offers project information, project instructions, a project data section, a student area, a teacher area, reference material and online help.
