Crash Course Kids: The Basics of Freshwater - Episode 14.1

We have a lot of water on Earth, but we also can’t actually drink much of it… or use it for farming.

That’s because most of the water on Earth is saltwater. We humans, like a lot of living things, need freshwater to survive. In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks about the difference between freshwater and saltwater and why freshwater is so important.

This first series is based on 5th grade science. We’re super excited and hope you enjoy Crash Course Kids!
