Facts of Water

Greater St. Louis Council

Personnel: Six Cub Scouts

Equipment: Buckets of water the Scouts can hold while speaking.

#1: Did you know that watermelon isn't called that for nothing? It’s 97% water.

#2: Did you know that during a lifetime, you will drink about 16,000 gallons of water?

3#: Did you know if all the valleys and mountains on land and on sea were leveled, water would cover the entire earth two miles deep?

#4: Did you know that waterpower is no idle phrase? Water flowing at 10 miles an hour can move a rock 10 feet thick.

#5: Did you know that water helps regulate climate: It absorbs heat in summer and releases it in the winter.

#6: Did you know that a birch tree releases about 70 gallons of water into the atmosphere each day, almost the amount a person uses in his home each day?
