Students at St Marys school had a chance to learn about how water is valuable to all and so limited in various parts of the world. Through an interactive activity students worked together as a “village” to determine how they would allocate water to 3 main areas (Agriculture, Industry and Human needs) depending on their political and geographic situations. Students were shocked at one of the stations as they had to run with a heavy backpack to a water source that appeared “dirty” and undrinkable. These were “real life” scenarios, where safe, clean, accessible water is not available to all people in the world. Students were humbled to think that many people, including children don’t have clean water to drink in this world. The Water lesson is truly impactful and generates some thought provoking discussions.
Water is Life!!
