A chance to teach science and other subjects in one lesson? Count me in! This is one lesson that's difficult to pass up. Educators will get the opportunity to hammer down an important point about how and why some countries don't have clean drinking water.
Before students even start to use beverages to theorize and hypothesize, start with this book to ensure that students know the basics of chemistry. Build on the concepts taught in this resource to gain student interest.
If your students learned about the ingredients and processing procedures that are used to produce common beverages, would they still be so quick to consume so many of them? Mine certainly weren't. After my students found out about how these drinks are made, and what they're made with, I later caught them asking things like, "ewwwww you're drinking that still?". Great resource for professional development, or for using certain text snippets in the classroom.
