Walk on water
- Published: March 30, 2017
The second-grade classes of Mrs. Mabra and Ms.Hoover are studying water as part of their spring PBL. Forty-four second-graders walked 3.7 miles over two days to simulate the average walk that many women and children in developing countries must make on a daily basis to get water for everyday needs. Three students were responsible for carrying one gallon of water to experience just a small part of the challenge of one person carrying 20 liters, or about 5.3 gallons, of water. The walk culminated on March 22 to recognize World Water Day. The walk with water was a launch of the water PBL that will continue through April and May.
