Lesson 1: Joining Forces for Cleaner Sources

JHT Staff

Let’s learn about local water sources, how water is treated and how to make sure everyone gets safe drinking water.

Then, we’re going to write about how well our community and the city are doing. Get your research notebooks out! Click on this link to use the different sections of the poster to answer the questions below.

  1. List the three sources our drinking water come from.
  2. Did you know our drinking water came from these places? Did any surprise you? Why or why not?
  3. “Everything that happens on the ground makes its way to the water.” Does that statement make you view the things you see on the side of the road differently? Dog poop! Fertilizer! Candy wrappers!
  4. The poster includes four ways you can help protect water sources. Choose one option and talk about how you could personally contribute. Choose another option and write about how the community could help.
