Drip, Drip, Drip

This resource pack contains eight activities based around water and personal finance education. Each activity is aimed at a specific age group at primary level and provides curriculum links to aspects of mathematics, science and PSHE. The activities are:

*[b]Needs and wants associated with water[/b]-Assess the priority of our everyday water uses and begin to appreciate that we cannot always have everything we need or want.

*[b]Which water?[/b]- Compare the value of tap water to bottled water and make money related choices.

*[b]How do we pay for it?[/b]- Look at how households are billed for the water they use and dispose of and understand and recognise a water bill, and the methods which can be used to pay for it.

*[b]Cost of supplying clean water[/b]- Find out where our water comes from and what goes into making it clean and safe whilst developing a sense of ‘value for money’.

*[b]Reducing your water bill[/b]- Consider ways to reduce water consumption in the home and making financial savings and how those savings could be used.

*[b]It’s just a little leak[/b]- Look at how small leaks in the home can contribute to a huge amount of water loss across the UK and make future financial plans for unexpected events.

*[b]Water and energy[/b]- In using water we often forget that we are also using energy to heat it and making informed financial decisions.

*[b]Water around the world[/b]- Find out about access to clean fresh water and how it varies significantly across the world whilst introducing the concept of charitable giving.
