Water Story Project – Where’s Our Water?

Where’s Our Water?

The Water Story Project video illustrates how students through brainstorming about water, animals, and the issues surrounding water, created a story.

Where’s Our Water? has been written for primary school students in the Lower Hunter region to teach them about the value of water as a precious resource and that it is everyone’s responsibility to care for it to ensure we have enough now and into the future. Hunter Water has collaborated with both the Awabakal and Worimi communities to create this new story that draws on their traditional wisdom and practices of caring for our land and waterways.” Read more here. 

As guided by the video, with students:

  •   Discuss the local water source near your school – is it the ocean, a river, lake, dam or billabong?
  •   Brainstorm themes and characteristics of water and your local water source.
  •   Discuss issues around water and the need to protect it.
  •   Pick animals that match your characteristics of water (as seen in video)
  •   Create a story that tells a journey of the animals and the water

·   Draw images for the story
