Description: 
In this lesson, students will learn the impact of weather variations on both the natural environment and all life within it. When the natural environment does not provide its usual resources, people must be willing to conserve what is available. After consulting a chart of average annual rainfall compared to rainfall in 2001-2002, students will make decisions about the need to conserve water.
