It's a great honored to be part of this challenge, and I believe everyone it might be part of this too. Saving the planet is our challenge and our goal for our children and our unique world, doesn't it, my dearies! So let me explain as well, like your kids, schools, and everyone could be part of this besides.


About the Cal Water H2O Challenge 
1. RegistrationCal Water H2O Challenge, and it ends on January 31, 2017
2. Project: 
  • The students of participating classrooms initiate, develop, and implement a 4-8 week-long project (or longer at teacher discretion), focusing on caring for water. This class-based project explores water as a global resource and as a local resource, while tackling a local water problem in an individual and community-based endeavor.
  •  A handbook can be found in the resources section of the challenge. calwater.com, including a guide for the flow of the project, and sample lesson plans. 
  • Upon completion of the project, students create a final portfolio documenting their work. This portfolio, along with accompanying cover sheets, student reflections, and a teacher reflection, constitutes the final submission. Submissions are due February 28, 2017.

Everyone can be part of this challenge at home as well; water conservation is something important that we need to think about it, as well as I, do at home, here some tips:
* Turn off faucets as long as you do not use them, even if it seems like a short time: while you soak your hair, you brush your teeth, scrub kitchen utensils, while you shave ...
* A shower of 5 min, saves about 3500 liters per month.
* Reuse the water: watering, scrubbing the floor ...
* Efficiently use appliances: put the washing machine and the dishwasher always when they are entirely full.
* Take advantage also to collect rainwater.
* Water your plants at dawn or dusk because this will prevent water from evaporating before being absorbed
* Immediately fix any water leaks: a dripping faucet can take up to 40 liters of water per day.

So are you ready my dear to join us on this Challenge, help us to rescue our world
