Abstract

Goal: To understand how geography and water quantity and quality impact food and fiber production.

Objectives:

  2. To understand how water stress impacts crop production.

  3. To conduct an experiment using scientific inquiry based on a water quality or quantity research question.

  4. Think like a scientist: Use statistical tools to compare and graphs to summarize results. Reason about your results, and those of other groups in your classroom, to draw conclusions related to the goal of understanding how geography and water availability and quality impact food production, and the impact on mankind.
