Needs & Wants and How They Influence Culture

This lesson plan and interactive web activity is for teaching students how needs are influenced by our environment. Using this web page students will be able to construct a new understanding for how scarcity of water can influence daily life. They will watch a video that requires active participation as it is watched. After the video is finished, the students will answer a questionnaire about their water usage. This data is added to answers from other children all around the world allowing students to see a graph showing how others get their water.
