Water Conservation Data Jam Teacher Resources

 

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in the Asombro Institute’s Water Conservation Data Jam curriculum unit. This unit was designed to introduce 6-12 grade students to data analysis and water conservation. We partnered with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (https://www.epa.gov/) to design an engaging, fun, and scientifically rigorous education unit aligned with Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and Agriculture Food and Natural Resources Standards.

 

The Water Conservation Data Jam curriculum unit consists of a menu of activities that can be mixed and matched by educators to create a personalized unit. The “Introduction” and all three “Main Course” lessons must be completed together, and the “Appetizers” and “Desserts” are optional activities to supplement student learning. This unit was designed to be conducted over a period of four to six class periods.
