UN Sustainable development Goal 6:
Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
Water is all around us: rivers, lakes, oceans, even puddles and raindrops. Yet despite the overwhelming amount of water on earth, very little of it is suitable for consumption. A person without access to improved drinking water is forced to rely on sources such as surface water, unprotected and possibly contaminated, and for many communities, water sources are usually far from home. It typically falls to women and girls to spend much of their time and energy fetching water, a task which often exposes them to attack from men and even wild animals.
But how difficult can it really be to get hold of potable water? This month, let’s learn about the water near where we live, why we use it, how we get it home and just how clean it really is.
The Earth Warriors this month will look at water sources near home. You will draw a little map of your area, highlighting water sources, such as rivers/lakes/coasts/even puddles! You will also collect a little bit of water from one of these sources and have a think about what it might contain. Can you see things in it? Would you drink it?
This task involves just a little English (e.g. drawing a picture, writing a few sentences) and is a simple, thought-provoking activity about the project of the month. Without the need of an in-depth understanding of the science behind it, we will explore the subject matter and learn some related vocabulary.
