We have been watching 5th and 6th GATErs do their end of unit projects for a couple of weeks now. So far we’ve had PowerPoints, videos, Vokis, demonstrations, and Prezis. I am so impressed so far with the work you have done so far! We’ve had some technical difficulties sharing some of your projects and I apologize for that. I can’t wait to publish some of them on the blog. If yours is polished and ready to go, leave me a comment so I can post it on the blog!
The culminating activity will be to create Public Service Announcements about water. You can choose to create your public service announcements independently or in groups up to 4. The following are sample requirements for the PSAs.
Your audience: your peers
Your goal: Create a Public Service Announcement
Think: What do you think is important for kids your age to know about water?
Provide information about water;
Tell about at least one aspect(s) of the world water crisis;
Propose ideas for how your peers can help;
Give your PSA a catchy title that would make people want to watch it;
Suggest ways others can learn more about the subject.
How can we help solve this water crisis? Watch the video below to see one innovative way people are helping. Brainstorm other viable solutions for increasing water availability to those most in need. Then, discuss how we with an abundance can conserve.

According to the article below, San Diego City Council may be raising the monthly water bills for typical homeowners up 6.4 percent to $72.03, starting March 1. Knowing this, how much is a typical water bill now? Is your family higher or lower than this?
We all know how devastating the situation of the dirty water is. Well, instead of just saying, “I feel sorry for them,” let’s come to action! Maybe the GATErs could buy a wristband from the website. At the bottom, there was a link that leads you to a place where you can donate money by purchasing a wristband or simply just donating money! Why don’t we give it a shot?
