Thinking about the different ways we use water - KS2

This resource is aimed at upper KS2 or lower KS3 and is part of a wider Rivers unit (see ‘Rivers - medium term plan’).

The presentation asks children to think about all the different ways we use water and where we get it from. Are these uses necessary (needs) or luxury (wants)? Children then categorise these uses as commercial/industrial, agricultural, recreational or community. Lastly, they are asked to consider how we can balance human water requirements with those of Earth’s wildlife.

In the activity children sort photos of different water uses into six different categories. The extension then challenges them to classify each water use as either necessary or luxury and explain their reasoning.
