Mission:Explore Freshwater – 7 free missions

October 26, 2010

14th-20th November is Geography Awareness Week and focus is on freshwater. The fantastic Sarah Caban at My Wonderful World, National Geographic’s campaign for geography, asked us to create a booklet of freshwater missions and we were delighted to help out. You can download all 7 missions from the Learn about Freshwater section of the site here. To wet your appetite here is the first of the missions..

Direct from the campaign, here is what it is all about:

“Water is one of the defining issues of the 21st century. Of all the water on the planet, less than 1% is available for human use. Will we have enough to support a growing global population, and how will a changing climate affect access to freshwater around the world? Discover the fascinating geography of Earth’s most precious natural resource through activities, multimedia, quizzes, and more this Geography Awareness Week—and learn what you can to do help, both globally and locally.

Launched in 1987 by presidential proclamation, Geography Awareness Week is an annual opportunity for families and schools to engage in fun, educational experiences that draw attention to Geo-Literacy and the importance of geographic understanding in ensuring our nation’s economic competitiveness, national security, environmental sustainability, and the livability of our communities in the 21stcentury.”

Browse, download and let everyone you know about the Freshwater resources for teachers and students here.
