Comments and Teaching Tips given for Down the Drain: How Much Water Do You Use? Comment on this resource

I really liked the materials section of the resource. All I had to do was print the forms for my students, instead of creating them myself. I also liked the hands on/participant observation style of the resource.

The only problem we had was that we had to reformat the spreadsheets that the students took home to gather data so that they would print on one page instead of two. This may have just been caused by a difference in computer platforms.
