After FOUR successful years of communicating with schools in other countries, work has begun on this year's version of the "Global Perspectives" project. "GP.03" will involve getting to know each other better and eventually discussing a most critical global issue: water. In the past, this project has been used to conduct surveys measuring global awareness, create case study reports, and even raise money to help build homes for earthquake victims in India.
Survey #1: Home Water Use Survey #2: Home Water Sources
