Malawi, Water and more of that

This has been posted about on loads of blogs, most recently on Ollie's. It's a really thought provoking and humbling piece of work, and I decided to use it with my s1 class today. I've recently received quite a bit of correspondence from our Malawi link school and really need to get moving on our side of things. Mathandani School have sent us some very personal views on how climate change has impacted on their lives. Many of the children, who are from rural communities talk about the impact of changing crop cycles due to longer and less predictable dry seasons. I thought as well as our responses (no doubt talking about the deluge of rain we've had) it would be good if we could do a project about how we account for our uses of water. I've asked Mr Kerr if he'd let us use the ecoschools blog as a platform for this, as I don't want this to be seen as just a Geography project. In a week's time, hopefully we'll see lots of responses about how s1 have tried to think about the water they are using before they use it. I've also asked History and Modern Studies to become involved in linking projects as I think we all have a huge role in citizenship education and should really be working on the link together for the sake of pupils experiences.
