This book, "One Well," takes a variety of topics - like the water cycle, water availability, and pollution - and incorporates them all into one large metaphor: one well. Overall, this book doesn't appear to be a typical science centered book, but I think the story like nature of the book allows students the opportunity to build an emotional connection to the subject matter along with finding a greater understanding of the subject matter. Along with that, the multitude of uses makes this book able to be used across multiple subject areas. You could use it when teaching on pollution, what it means to be a global citizen, and water usage, just to name a few. Because of it's breadth of applications and readability, I think that "One Well" would be a well rounded book to use in the classroom, particularly for upper elementary aged students. ( )

This book introduces the reader to the idea that all water on Earth is connected and can be traced back to a single "well." The book is organized into sections that cover different water-related topics such as "Animals at the Well" and "People at the Well." The information in this book includes brief introductions of the water cycle, habitats, plants and animals as well as water conservation, access to water, and pollution. The book is organized in a way that allows the reader to enjoy the book from cover to cover or to be able to identify key words in the index and use the book to learn more about a specific topic. The book concludes with ways the reader can respond to issues like water pollution and unequal access to water across the world.

Personal reaction:
I think that the comparison of the Earth's water to a well is effective in helping the reader see the how all of the Earth's water is connected. I think the book does a good job at providing an introduction to water-related topics and would be great to keep in the classroom to use at the beginning of science units. It also provides opportunities to have important discussions about access to water and water conservation in the classroom.

Keywords/science topics:
Water cycle, habitats (oceans, streams, rivers, lakes, marshes, etc), photosynthesis, conservation, pollution, hydroelectricity

A couple of uses:
- Read page 8 titled "Recycling Water in the Well" during a unit on the water cycle. Use the information and the diagram at the bottom of the page to create a model of the cycle as a class.
- Use the pictograph on page 21 to show students how they can create their own pictograph. The pictograph that students create could be part of a water unit or it could be for an unrelated unit.
- After reading the book, have students brainstorm ways that the class could work together to care for the Earth's water in their community. Compile ideas and then have students vote on what project they would like to take on as a class. ( )

Overall: This is a very colorfully illustrated book all the importance and history of water conservation. Topics include who and what uses water, water habitats, freshwater wells, water well demands, water pollution, and ways to become aware/conserve freshwater. I think this book would be a great starting point to talk about how our actions have consequences and how we can administer change.

Possible science topics:
-Water cycle
-Water conservation

-This book has lots of information and since this book contains an index, students could be taught how to use an index to find specific information.
-This book also has many statistical figures. (70% of Earth's surface is covered in water, a birch tree can draw about 80 gallons of water from soil
during the summer etc...) . A lesson could be taught on how authors use statistics to add credibility in informational books. We could
look at examples of good/reliable stats and unreliable/skewed stats. How do we know if statistics can be trusted?
