KNOWATER - The One Water Curriculum

June 22, 2015
Water is found nearly everywhere on Earth. It is found in the air, on land, and in all living things. It is also found in oceans, lakes, rivers, streams, and ponds. Approximately 75% of the Earth’s surface is covered by water. Much of Florida’s water is found in marshes, swamps, and wetlands. One of the major wetlands in Florida is the Everglades. An abundant supply of water can also be found below the ground in the form of groundwater. Most people in the United States get their drinking water from groundwater. On average, Florida receives about 54 inches of rain per year. Where does all that water go?

This Knowater curriculum is the next major step in the process. It provides a way for students to explore a substance that is so pervasive in our lives that we tend to take it for granted. The earth, like our own bodies, is made of over 70 percent water. Water is essential to existence and it flows through spiritual, creative and practical aspects of our lives. As the earth’s snowcaps melt and freshwater resources succumb under the pollution load created by humans, every passing day demands action to improve the situation. But action can only follow understanding and knowledge. Knowater is dedicated to help students understand water through exploration.
