Focus theme: Water!
Lack of water around the world.
Before we look at the information about water shortage, there are some words that we need to explore: shortage, sanitation, hygiene, surface, limited, resource, disposed.
Use a dictionary to find out the definitions of these words, e.g. http://www.wordhippo.com
In some countries, there is a severe shortage of water and in particular, of clean drinking water.
Watch this clip from Water Aid. Listen out for some of the words that you have explored. A World of Water – Water Aid: https://www.youtube.c om/watch?v=UzRdJc-vPjM
Now listen/watch this poem:
Water Walk – Water Aid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4V- KoJGGJ4s
You are going to write a poem back as a response. How do you feel about the children having to walk this distance and carry the dirty, heavy water home? When might you think of those children in your daily routine? Watch the poem again, pausing after each thought, so that you can write your response.
At one mile, I wish my day could start like yours,
On a gentle walk to school or later to a shopping mall, A party or a local park.
At dawn, I think about you as I rise,
My morning routine, the water I use,
I think of you.
I think of you beginning your long, arduous trek down the dusty road.
