Water is essential for life on earth. How has climate change affected the water we drink, the oceans we fish and the lakes and streams we enjoy? Conserving these valuable resources by focusing our attention on protecting and respecting our fresh and ocean water is paramount. We look at Earth's water and how human activity and climate change is affecting it's purity and quantity as well as the health issues facing plant and animal life in fresh and marine water ecosystems. Our ready-to-use resource is written using simplified language and vocabulary which are presented in a way that is easier for students to understand. Included are reading passages, graphic organizers, student activities, colour posters, a crossword, a word search and a comprehension quiz. This title is designed for remedial education and with material the teacher can reproduce for student activity.
