Water study for Kids - in Poatina

For the last few weeks we have had the opportunity to look closely at WATER and all the ways it comes and goes in our Village! The first week we looked at where our water comes from. We drove up the mountain a little and then gathered round to listen to the lovely Hannah.
We looked at maps learning all about markings of valleys and mountains and contour lines! Then the children demonstrated what that's like with wonderful exercises from Amy!!
It was raining the whole time we were out but it was really quite fun to be out and about in it, learning about water! We found the reservoir and the creek and the Weir that helps sift out all the yuckies from our Mountain water!

The children all had a great time and certainly know a lot more about our water system after our field trip!
