Did you know that water is made up of two elements; hydrogen and oxygen? Did you know that water covers about 70% of the surface of the earth? Did you also know that most of the water on the surface of the earth is saltwater? If your response to any of the above questions is ‘no’, then it’s time you joined the Mukamusaba Conservation Club lessons on water!
The students have just started learning about water, with volunteer Samuel from New Zealand tasked with the duty of teaching the class. During the lesson, the children learned that water is the only material that can exist in a solid form - ice - while floating on its liquid form – sea, in the form of icebergs. The lesson also looked at some of the uses of water including:
- in agriculture
- for cooking
- in the creation of electricity
- within tourism, like the Victoria Falls.
The lesson was great. Well done to Samuel for delivering it so well!
