Unit Plan: The Cost of Water

This inquiry leads students through an investigation of water access in the Middle East using various sources that consider geographical, political and economic issues. By investigating the compelling question, students examine the geography of the region, including environmental and demographic relationships, the ecological impact of accessing water, and the subsequent political conflicts over control of natural resources. By completing this inquiry, students begin to understand issues revolving around access and control of resources, such as the consequences of power struggles that befall countries with limited access to water resources.
