3 (continued) Extensions Have students conduct follow up studies on the surveyed households after they have been presented with the educational campaign, to see whether their water bill is lower or their water use is different after the educational campaign. Have students expand their survey area to the community as a whole. Have students survey school staff. Have students focus on other kinds of water conservation initiatives, besides what individuals can do in their own homes. Are there larger scale activities that could be targeted? Encourage students to think about state or national policies that affect water use, the ways their parents might pay for water, the systems by which water is delivered to homes and businesses, and industries that use large quantities of water. Are there water conservation strategies they can identify in any of these areas? Modifications for Younger Students (Grades 3-4) Instead of having students design the survey, provide the questions on the board, discuss each one and ask students if they have any questions they would like to add. Once the survey is complete, make copies of it and provide each student with several copies to take home. Tell them to ask a parent or older sibling to assist them in asking the questions of another person. They should try to administer no more than two surveys. Assessment Use student charts, graphs, and project materials to assess their understanding of the data they gathered. As a class, develop a rubric (set of criteria and measures) for this evaluation prior to the project s start.
