Children understand that water is precious and we should try not to waste it and know some of the actions we can take to save water. Children recognise that kids all around Australia – including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander kids – are taking action to save water.
This activity forms part of the Caring For Country: Introductory Lessons and Themed Activities. It is recommended that you complete the Introductory Tuning in Lessons in this unit before sharing the Themed Activities with children.
