Prior Knowledge Water is finishing in the world. Water is one of the important natural resources PRIOR KNOWLEDGE If we don´t have water we can die. Do not contaminate water
The Water Water resources that are so usefulor potentially to humans. Uses of water include Agricultural, Industrial, Household, Recreational and Environmental activities. 97% is salt water, 3% fresh water. Fresh water is a renewable resource, but fresh water is decreasing.
Agricultural It is estimated 69% of worldwide water is use for irrigation. In some areas of the world irrigation is necessary to grow any crop at all, in other areas it permits more profitable crops to be grown or enhances crop yield. Aquaculture is small but growing agricultural use of water. Watering crops.
Household It is estimated 15% of worldwide water use is for household purposes. These include drinking water, bathing, cooking, sanitation and gardening. Gardening Take a shower
Recreational water use is usually a very small, but growing percentage of total water use. Recreational water use is mostly tied to reservoirs. Recreational usage may reduce the availability of water for other users at specific times and places. Recreation skiing Playing ball Diving
Industrial It is estimated that 15% of worldwide water use is industrial. Major industrial users include power plants, which use water for cooling or as power source. Ore and oil refineries, which use water in chemical process and manufacturing plants, which use water as solvent.
Explicit environmental water use is a very small but growing percentage of total water use. Environmental water usage includes artificial wetlands, artificial lakes intended to create wildlife habitat. Environmental
Why do we need water? Water is the most important resource. On Earth. We need water to grow and stay alive. We could only live for a few days without drinking water. We also need water to grow plants and crops, and take care of animals etc.
Some ways to conserve water Try some of these ideas to conserve water: Turn the water off while you are brushing your teeth or washing your face. Check you home and school for leaky faucets, and tell an adult if you find one that drips. Take shorter showers, and don´t fill the tube all the way when you take a bath. Don´t leave the garden hose on all night when watering plants. Make sure the dishwasher and washing machine are full each time your family does a load.
