Water on Earth
Water covers most of our planet.
Even though there is a lot of water on Earth, only a very tiny amount is fresh water we can drink. Most of the water is salty sea water or frozen in icebergs and glaciers.
Without water, the Earth would look like the moon!
Water is a very valuable resource; we need to save it today, so we have it tomorrow.
