All About Water


All About Water is a hands-on and highly interactive source that encourages school children to explore the fascinating world of freshwater habitats and to develop an understanding of all things 'wet and wild'.  Using a specially designed, graphically engaging workbook the course examines the key themes of water protection and conservation, ensuring that the students have an understanding of their own responsibilities when it comes to this precious resource.

This workbook comprises five lessons that discuss the importance of water in our everyday lives: what it is, where it comes from and how it is to be conserved and protected.  Each lesson contains simple experiments and activities.  In addition to the workbooks, a @Lab in a box' was developed containing all of the equipment required to carry out the different experiments.
