Hi everyone,

Looks like we've got some new faces to complete our team. And more great
news-- we only need two more sanitation topics and one more water topic
before we've completed our unit outline! Let's Skype to divvy up lessons and
get cracking.

I'm free anytime today, tomorrow or next week, including Monday, up until
about 5pm EDT each day. Sat/Sun are not good for me, however.

In the meantime, let's finish fleshing our lessons out and if you have any
particular ideas as to how to present something, add it to the outline. If
we can have a pretty good outline by the time we Skype that would be great!

   2. Who, What, When, Where, Why and How to wash your hands
   3. How to make soap

   5. Proper disposal of human waste

   1. Intro to water: different types of water, saltwater vs freshwater,
