Six Fun Ways to teach Kids about Water Conservation

 

If last year’s climate activism taught us anything, it’s that kids are just as interested in saving the environment as anyone. And why not? As they grow up in a world increasingly affected by climate change they are going to be the ones feeling the consequences and putting in the hard work to stop them. It might be a scary and uncertain time to be a parent of young kids, but living a more sustainable, eco-friendly life can be fun, rewarding, and a great opportunity to bond as a family. That’s why we’ve found six engaging ways to teach kids about water conservation designed to educate and entertain along with the way.

1. Tell a story

The best way to introduce them to concepts of water conservation is to make a story out of them. Firstly, global issues like water conservation or climate change can be so massive that young kids find them hard to grasp. Try making it relevant to them by talking about your own experiences. How did you get interested in the environment? Was it a particular memory, a TV show, a school trip? How old were you?

2. Get out into nature

Once they’re interested, give them context by showing the role of water in nature. If you can, go visit the spring or reservoir where your local area gets its water. If your kid needs some convincing, try starting out at an aquarium. “Most aquariums have child-friendly activities, and many will have events that focus on where water comes from and why it’s important to save it as much as we can. If you’re feeling more adventurous, go on a camping trip by a river or lake, where you can see how water brings nature to life,” says Hillary Adams at Paper Writing Service and Research Paper Writing. Memorable moments like these will help inspire the conservationist in anyone.

3. Daily routines

Build water conservation into your child’s daily routine in small, achievable ways. Globally we use around 4 trillion m³ of fresh water each year.

Making small adjustments early on in life is the best way to form environmentally conscious lifelong habits. Some ideas might be:
