Suggestions of approaches for the teacher

(Approach 1) Promote a discussion activity that raises the following topics:

  1. Have you ever thought about what the Planet would be like without water?

  2. How is the water situation on our planet?

  3. In which states can we find water?

  4. In which state do human beings consume water?

  5. Can we consume ocean water?

  6. Is water necessary? Why?

  7. Where does water come from?

  8. Can we run down of water? What would happen if we did?

  9. Do we need to save water? How?

(Approach 2) Create a list of things we can do at home and school to avoid wasting water.

(Approach 3) Create a graphic containing the percentage of water distribution on the planet.

(Approach 4) To analyze the importance of water in our lives, working with the music video "Saving water song" from Lotty Friends ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwQ7PSrwGuI ).

(Approach 5) Present the following video to students and promote a debate about it. You can also ask them to work in groups and create posters about it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTcFXJT0Fsc

(Approach 6) Ask students to build a miniature of how the water treatment process works.

(Approach 7) Observe and discuss the following infographic. https://www.westerncape.gov.za/assets/how-to-save-water-2016_0.png

(Approach 8) Assemble posters around the school presenting the importance of discussing this topic at school. You can also print the following infographics. https://www.westerncape.gov.za/assets/how-to-save-water-2016_0.png https://neoakruthi.com/blog/infographics/how-to-save-water-in-schools-infographics.jpg

(Approach 9) Present students with the water calculator. The student should think about how much water they spend on daily chores. You can tell them to ask their parents before the activity. There are some calculators below. https://www.smartwatermark.org/watercalculator/NZ/#results https://www.watercalculator.org/wfc2/q/household/

More about the content

Many students can question you about the amount of water on the planet and why we need to care for it. You should explain that only a part of it is fresh water. It is a suitable opportunity to show them videos or infographics about the desalination process. Emphasize the pros and cons of that process.

Also, explain the water cycle highlighting that water doesn't disappear. What happens is that the quality of water decreases. It will get to a point when people won't be able to treat it anymore, or it won't return to the groundwater as fresh water. You can check the following links to learn about the topic.
