Engaging ideas and resources for the classroom

Get involved

Use these classroom resources, created in partnership with Anglian Water and Welsh Water, to engage your pupils with issues surrounding WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) and girls’ access to education.

Presentations, teacher notes, games and worksheet activities are linked to a variety of subjects and aligned to the English and Welsh curriculum.

Activities introduce pupils to the core themes of our Thirst for Knowledge appeal: access to WASH, and its impacts on girls' education. Students will develop their key skills and understanding, within the context of international development.

Resources can be used as part of a sequence of learning, a one-off lesson, or as standalone activities.

With thanks to our water industry partners, Anglian Water and Welsh Water. 



Build these worksheets into your existing lessons, or use them as standalone activities. You could also use them as extension activities for the three lessons above.
