Educator Review(s)


The 4 Liters challenge allows students to experience water poverty for an allotted amount of time (2 days is the suggested length of participation). This 'game' can help students see what water poverty is and why it is a human rights issue for all people. The 4liters.org portal allows students to share their water poverty experience online by connecting to their other social media outlets to either raise awareness about water poverty or raise money for water poverty projects or both! The portal makes it easy for teachers to create a team group and have students join. The portal also offers 15 engaging lesson plans which are common core aligned, flexible to implement in the classroom, and reinforce the 4Liters 'game.' Finally 4liters.org allows students to create videos, post pictures and inspire social action about water access in our country and abroad. Maggie Lauder, Servite High School, Anaheim, CA - 3/7/14.

This game shows the amount of water you use in a day and how much you can live off of it.Conserving water can also save you money and help the environment. Most people who play this game do not do it for fun,they do it for the challenge and to relate to others and how they live. By relating to peoples struggles around the world it might inspire you to change the way you live by using less water. Using less water can also help people in the United states even though in the U.S. we do not have serious water issues. -MattieR 2/25/14
