6-3 Resourses


  1. This is a good introduction to the water cycle and a game the students can play. In the game, they will be a water molecule and travel through the water cycle, maybe ending up in the Queen’s cup of tea!
  2. Test the water from a river with adult supervision.
  3. Walking – Carry a bucket of water from a river or stream to their school to water a tree. This to experience how far women and children in Africa and other countries must carry water.
