Students will be able to understand the
expectations for the unit on water and will be
able to understand the importance of water.

students and giving them some time to write
down what they already know about water
and what they want to learn about it.
Expectations:Tell students that in this unit
they will be making an inquiry journal in
which they will note down their reflections for
every day and the questions they want to
investigate further.
Literacy: Create a word wall in the classroom
and divide it into two columns: everyday
words and scientific words
Numeracy: Create a timeline of your use of
water over the past week indicating how
much water is used in the activity (standard:
4 liters / minute comes out of the tap).
Importance of Water: Present students with a
media article Water supplies critical in the
