Wet Your Whistle! Drinking Water Activity Handbook

Paying more for a famous name means the water must be healthier, or at least taste better, right? Wrong. All bottled water is required to be safe to drink. Some have more minerals. Others have bubbles. Which brands or types seem healthier or tastier is a matter of personal preference. Some people like their tap water best.

Learn about water—from the bottle and tap—with the Wet Your Whistle! Drinking Water Activity Handbook.

Wet Your Whistle is an excellent and well-written book that addresses the issue of drinking water. Activities are used to illustrate the differences between bottled and tap water, filtration and hardness, and purification of surface water. Readings address the sources of drinking water, its importance to the body, and threats to drinking water supplies. The book is easy to read and is well illustrated. It should be a part of every biology teacher’s classroom.

This book is part of a series of books developed by Miami University’s Terrific Science Press through a Science Education Partnership Award from the National Institutes of Health. Students and parents can use each book in the series to conduct simple at-home experiments to provide insight into health and safety issues. The books include a set of challenges and puzzles and art projects. Teachers could use these books as a source for ideas for classroom activities as well as for enrichment projects. It’s a shame these aren’t duplicator books, but the cost is low and a class set of the books is affordable. The series has its own website, and each book contains references and a bibliography. " "
