Lesson 7: Celebrate water for all!

For use with Celebrate water

Learning objective

People near and far can make a lasting difference: so let’s celebrate the idea of WATER FOR ALL!

What to do:

  • Ask the children to have a go at the Celebrate water activity on screen. This lends itself to whole-class involvement. Ask, What message(s) is the activity trying to convey?
  • If the children wanted to tell the world how water is wonderful and a right for all, in what ways could it be done?


  • Collect images of water in diverse settings (including ones from this resource) and devise an advert-style montage of  Water for All!
  • Collect water-related words as a store for poetry writing. Use rhythm to echo water’s various states and moods, or its use and abuse within the water cycle. Use short beats and repetition to create a rousing chorus. Add a percussive backing.
  • Use existing work to create an assembly presentation/display.
  • Plan a procession with banners, costume/masks, songs and leaflets for distribution on the theme of ‘water for all’.
  • Invite a practising artist in education to come and do some expressive art work on ‘water’ with the children.
