Help Conserve Water

Water conservation is very important as it is an infinite resource that we all rely on. Learn about the 3 P’s – the only things that can be flushed down the toilet and about other ways to help conserve water. 

This Eco-focus can be run any time but may fit in well in November with World Toilet Day to acknowledge those who do not have access to sanitation and also ensure we take care of our sanitation systems.

Step 1

Show your children this great video about the 3 P’s, the only items that should be flushed down the toilet: poo, pee and toilet paper. 

Step 2

Play the ‘To Flush or Not To Flush” game with your class! This game is flexible but basically involves the teacher holding up household items or items that frequently get flushed down the toilet. Children can then guess if they can or cannot flush the items and why.

You can use items around your classroom or bring in some items from home! 

Or you can download these game cards and hold those up instead. The children can have the option to place the cards into the toilet or the rubbish bin. 

It is important to get children to understand why the 3 p’s can only be flushed down the toilet. 

Step 3

Join our 3 p’s song challenge! 

 

Together with your centre, create a short song (1 – 2 verses and a chorus) and/or a music video (1 – 2 minutes) about the 3 p’s and using toilet systems wisely. 

Step 4

Send us your song recording or music video and go in the draw to win re-usable water bottles and toilet training education packs for your centre!

Submit!

Use the form to the right to submit!

We can't wait to see your centers' germination station photo journal!
