It's Water-Wise Wednesday with Frannie the Fish! {How much water do you use?}

Have you ever thought about how much water you use in one day?  Did you know that brushing your teeth can use up to two gallons of water?  Simply turning the faucet off while brushing can save one and half gallons!

This got Frannie thinking of the other ways she uses water throughout the day.  Frannie decided to use the chart below to visualize how much water she's using.

Frannie wants you to create your own chart or use the one provided too!  All you have to do is use a writing utensil to color in the boxes.  Use the guide at the top to see how much coloring each activity requires.

Frannie had so much fun coloring and finding out how much water she was using that she decided to chart her water use for the next two weeks and she challenged herself to reduce her water use over those two weeks!  Frannie is challenging you to do the same!

Do you have helpful hints for how Frannie could reduce her water use?  Share your ideas here.
