Lesson Plan of the Day: The Disappearing Water (Grades 4-5)

In this lesson students will learn why water is not an unlimited resource. They will research ideas like water scarcity, how pollutants affect our bodies of water, and why some water is harder than other water to make drinkable. Students will be given time to research these ideas and present to their classmates once they have found some answers.

With the world moving towards distance learning and parents having to take on more responsibility in their childrens’ education, we at H2O for Life decided that it was time to revisit some of our more popular lesson plans and make them more accessible for everyone to use.

South Sudan School 3 (2020)

South Sudan

Our South Sudanese projects are quite unique from our others in the fact that they are not typically built at a school. These projects are built in villages with the plan that a school will form around that well in the future. The reason for this difference from our other projects is that South Sudan in its war-torn state is in desperate need for even the basic infrastructures to begin new communities. These South Sudan projects are not named because they are not typically schools yet at this point in the process. They will simply be a community well.

Friends Primary School Givogi

Kenya 340 beneficiaries

Friends Primary School Givogi was established in 2009 by a church sponsor that donated the land. It started with just a preschool class and has slowly grown over the past years to now have 326 students from preschool to standard eight. But the growth has been slow because of high poverty levels in this area.English, Kiswahili, mathematics, science, social studies and religious studies are the subjects taught here.There are four incomplete classrooms and two semi-permanent (mud) classrooms that are not in good shape. Standard six and seven children have their lessons in the same classroom, separated only by papyrus reeds. A circular grass-thatched temporary gazebo structure has been built to serve as the staffroom for the teachers.
