Third Grade’s Year-Long Study of Water
Third Graders visited the Fairmount Water Works as part of their year-long study of waer. Once the heart of Philadelphia’s water distribution system, the Water Works is now an interpretive center which educates visitors about Philadelphia’s urban watershed. Third Graders considered how many gallons of water on average a person uses each day through consumption and household appliances. They brainstormed ways people can conserve water, such as turning off the water when brushing your teeth and only running a full dishwasher.
