Yr 9 Water Assessment Presentation Transcript

  • 1. What is it?
    • It has the power to form community - and the power to start a war
    • For many it costs next to nothing – still they spend billions to buy it
    • It determines the way we live - without most people even noticing it
    • We’ve shared it with ancient dinosaurs - and it will be here long after we’re gone
    • 1 in 6 people don’t have enough of it – others use it like no one else needs it
    • We search for it on distant planets - while we waste it here on our own
    • It gives life – it can take life – you might even say it is life itself
    • Some argue it is a basic human right – others sell it for huge sums of money
    • Some walk hours for just a little – others simply reach out for more than they need
    • It is the basis of all life – yet we fail to respect it
  • 2. Water
