1. Why is water considered a "Natural Resource?"
2. How is water essential (required) to our survival and the survival of all living things?
1. Water is considered a natural resource because it is not man made. It is made by rain or by the sewer by your urine.
2. It is required to humans and some living creatures because it helps us hydrate our bodies so we can get all the nutrients we need. It is also required so that if you are hungry or thirst it is a thirst quencher.
