Globally Aware: We’re all Part of the Same Village

Lesson Plan Content
Around the world, some of the natural resources (water, land, and air) on which life depends are increasingly becoming depleted or compromised. In some parts of the world, basic sanitation (running water, toilets, and safe water) are not universal. In this lesson students will use statistics to examine human-environmental stresses.
