This weeks Water Fun Fact is about how much fresh water we have on the Earth if we use an example.

If the entire world’s water were fit into a 1 gallon jug, the water available in surface sources would equal a Drop.

A fun activity to demonstrate this is “A Drop in The Bucket” which can be found in the Project WET materials.  A copy of this activity can be found at

There are also some videos that shows how this might look for an educational event. One is here:

One video from Athens Clarke County showing the “Drop in the Bucket

A second one is on YouTube showing the “Drop in the Bucket

Just remember, with all the water on the Earth, only a Drop is readily available as Surface Water.
