Teach Your Children About the Importance of Water

The Flow of Water

Water is essential for life on the Planet, we all know this, water holds a very special place for us for that very reason. Some of us fish, some of us surf, some own a boat, some of like water features near our homes, some own swimming pools, but all of us drink water. Perhaps there are serious supply issues where you are? Perhaps, there are filtration needs, upgrades to sewer plants, perhaps you are in a part of the world with no such facilities?

The Flow of Water is ranked near the top, because without water you have no civilization at all. If one were to travel to every city in this nation you would be able to tell each time when you are coming to where a city might be located simply by the way the terrain is formed and where water might flow. The towns are all built near water. These towns were originally connected by dirt roads, then the railroad connected the towns near water to fill up the steam engines, then they build the highways connecting the cities. But it all started with a river, creek, lake or well. Water determines, where and how we live. Why is the flow of water so important to our lives? Well, we are all familiar with the cycle of water. The evaporation, rain and then the long flow back to the ocean.

There is not a shortage of water on this little blue planet; from what we can see with 2/3 of the Earth's Surface covered with it. However 97.2% of the water is salt water in the oceans. We need fresh water to drink and sustain life. There are tremendous amounts of frozen fresh water in the polar ice caps. There is actually more water in the atmosphere than in all the rivers. About nine times as much fresh water in the lakes than atmosphere; there is lots of ground water at about 95% of the fresh water is in the ground. There is as much water between 1 half mile to 1 mile from the surface as there is deep lying ground water which is more than a mile underground. This table will help you understand the situation better.

There is not a shortage of water in the world. There is merely a problem with its salinity and distribution to various regions such as deserts, often mankind has triumphed over these issues, often he has not. The flow of water affects everything we do. Where we live and work. What we eat and how we play. The flow of water is one of the most important flows of life on the surface of the Planet and has more to do with the evolution of life on Earth than nearly every other factor. Life seems to have begun in the shallow water and expanded into all depths and areas of the oceans. Life on land grows best where water is plentiful. These basic facts should be taught to all children and teens in school. Here is a basic course outline:

This will teach kids to understand the issues and conserve the fresh water supply. Children should be taught to conserve and respect water. How we use it, treat it, divert it and how it brings us life, food, transportation and beauty.
