World Toilet Day and the water cycle

Today is World Toilet Day so we did water based topics at our group get-together today. This day is marked to raise awareness of the amount of people in the world who don't have toilets and clean water.

We set up different kinds of filter for dirty water to see how they performed. There was quite a difference in the colour of the 'clean' water that filtered through.

We watched some videos about water purification, composting toilets and why we need sanitation and hand washing.

We looked at the water cycle by adding labels to this background and talking about the words.

We are going to set up a condensation experiment at home to observe over a few days as well.
