Conserving Water

The new term has begun with the installation of water tanks. We continue our journey to learn more about caring for our environment and looking after our natural resources. Today we checked out the watertanks for the first time. We tapped the sides to hear what it sounded like when we tapped at the water level and what it sounded like when we tapped over the height of the water level. 

We have one tank of water to use in our sandpit, and another tank of water to use in our vegetable garden. All the water in the water tanks is collected from the rain that falls on the roof. We explored all the pipes that came down from the roof's gutter. We will have to check the water tanks in the morning to see how much water we have available - and hope it rains lots, so our water tank always stays full..... yeah right! This will be a great learning exercise to managing our use of water.
