How can we reduce our water footprint at home?
Given the growing threat of drought in the world, as concerned students-citizens the 3rd of ESO students have been called to take some action in order to make people aware of the importance of saving water. Small actions can create big change and this is what we want people to understand. So, we have created ads to make people realize that every drop counts, and that we should reduce its use if we want to preserve life on earth. LET’S MAKE A WAVE!
What have we done?
In the technology class we have reflected upon the water footprint and have learned about the different processes involved in water treatment. We have made experiments, analysed charts and dealt with written and visual documents to understand processes such as water purification, potabilisation, seawater desalination, osmosis, etc.
We have also worked out our family-water consumption and we have researched about different efficient ways of saving water at home.
In the English class we have dealt with different types of documents (articles, videos and ads), we have analysed them and discussed about the importance of saving water and how to do it.
Finally, we have presented our project in front of the class including the following steps:
- Presented our ad and explained its aim
- Reflected on the importance of saving water
- Shown the ad
- Shown the making off
- Shared our experiences and anecdotes
- Explained what we have done to promote it
- Explained what we have learned with the project
WATCH SOME OF OUR ADS AND HELP US MAKE A WAVE!!!
THE FUTURE IS IN YOUR HANDS!
