Learn about the distribution of water on Earth and how available and accessible freshwater is used and replenished by precipitation with this NASA video and graphic.
Learn how drip irrigation helps conserve water as compared with traditional irrigation methods in this video.
In this lesson, students examine all the stages in the water cycle to gain a deeper understanding of how this process works.
In this lesson, students study the availability of fresh water on Earth and the methods that can be used to purify and conserve it. They also assess how much water they and their families typically use and think about ways to reduce water usage.
Designing a filter that turns black, salty, muck into drinkable water is a tall order. In this video segment adapted from ZOOM, cast members take cues from what they know about natural sediment filters—the kind that produce underground spring water—and use similar materials to create their own mini water filters.
This video demonstrates how ground pollution and upstream water pollution can be carried downstream to other bodies of water and land.
These video segments from Georgia Outdoors explore three of Georgia's rivers, including the Chattahoochee River, the Flint River, and the Coosa River.

In this multimedia presentation, Steve Bransford collects the field recordings and photographs of George Mitchell. Bransford combines original documentary footage of area musicians with contextualizing quotations from related scholarship to offer an introduction to the rich and varied blues traditions of the Lower Chattahoochee Valley.
Tour a water desalination plant, where brackish water (a mixture of freshwater and saltwater) gets turned into pure freshwater in this video.
Water is one of our planet’s most important natural resources. There is the same amount of water on earth now as there was when the earth was formed and there will never be any more or any less.
Dr. Chris Muhlstein explains the structure and property changes of water. He discusses the atomic arrangement of water by observing how it changes as it goes through each phase (solid, liquid, gas).
