Lesson 5: Opinion Piece

JHT Staff

Watch these two videos on the importance of clean water access.

Using what you learned so far, write an opinion piece on why water quality (having clean, drinkable water) matters in our community. Minimum four paragraphs, 3-5 sentences each paragraph. Make sure to include:

  1. A global perspective, using the information you learned from the videos.
  2. All the different ways people use water in their lives
  3. Imagine would happen if our water was toxic? How would you be affected? Think about what you saw in the video.
  4. Have you ever thought about the fact that some people don’t have clean water, or is it a privilege you don’t really think about?
  5. Use all of the above to answer the question: Why does clean water matter to our community?
