If one sheet of paper contains 10 litres of water, then how many litres in a ream of 500 sheets? 10x500? Shocking, isn't it!?  5000 litres of secret water are in one ream of paper. Something we all take for granted! Our learners used the computers to do their research and to create a presentation about the facts of secret water used to make paper. We then made a few senarios using our bodies and imaginations to create a human formation of the processes of making paper. Keeping in mind the pollution during this process, the results made us all want to not only recycle paper, but re-use it as much as possible too.
