We Use That Much

Water is hiding everywhere. Students will learn about “Virtual Water” – the amount of water used to extract, grow, produce, process and transport an item to places of purchase. Find out how we can all help conserve water by the choices we make everyday.

Activity Description

Students will investigate how much water is used to produce everyday items in terms of litres of water. Using an interactive display, students will compete as teams to see who can guess how much water is in everyday items (e.g.: hamburger, car, newspaper)

This activity centre is part of the Water Attitude theme.
