Virtual Water: The Idea Kit
The Goethe Institut is making new materials addressing the topic of virtual water available to interested German and STEM teachers. The dual-language materials can be implemented as a unit or integrated as stand alone activities. These project ideas lend themselves especially well for cross-curricular use.
The topic ‘virtual water’ focuses on how much water is used in the production of goods, such as food and other products.
- What is virutal water?
- How much water do different products require during production?
- What are the consequences of water usage in arid regions?
- What connections can be made to one’s own consumption?
What’s provided in the Idea Kit:
- Dual-language collection of materials
- Materials for the ‘Virtual Waterline’ (line, pins, picture cards)
- Promotional material
