Water in Space

One of the biggest challenges in space is not having enough water. This is also a challenge on Earth. We take a closer look at how water is used, recycled and conserved on board the ISS, and hear from the astronauts how the experience of lack of water changes their appreciation of how precious fresh water is. You might be surprised at the different methods of water conservation on board! Follow this up with activities that support the theme of water and water conservation that support themes within your science curriculum such as the Water Cycle, and Social Studies curriculum such as water conservation. Don’t forget to always share your activities on #ELFinSpace so Sultan can see your hard work!
