Water and hydrology connect to everything. For a few examples ... There is water in the air. Air has humidity. Water droplets make up clouds in the sky. Water falls from clouds as rain and snow. Water relates to the ground. Water falls from the clouds to the ground. There is water on the ground, underground, and in the soil. Water drains quickly through sandy soil and slowly through clay soil. Water relates to habitats. There is water in every habitat. Each habitat is different from other habitats inpart because each habitat depends on having a different amount of water. The dunes have some water, the woods and wetlands are wetter, and the lake has the most water. Water relates to plants and animals. Plants and animals drink water. Many animals live in the water. Water relates to people. People drink water, cook with water, clean with water, use water to make things, live near water, and play with water. Water quality affects people's health, economy, education, freedom, art, and values. If water is pristine and adequately abundant, people's health, economy, education, freedom, art, and values have the best change of flourishing. Whereas if water is polluted and or too scarce (or if people are unprepared for floods), people's health economy, education, freedom, art, and values will probably suffer. Likewise, if water is pristine and in appropriate quantities, habitats thrive; and, if water is poisoned and in inappropriate quantities, habitats perish. Everything is connected to everything; thus, water relates to all social elements (health, economy, school, government, art, values, etc.), culture, and all natural elements (habitats, plants, animals, water, ground, air, etc.).
