Overall aims:

  • Observing the water as a natural habitat;
  • Enriching the knowledge about water;
  • Discovering the importance of water for the human economy; 
  • Developing interests in nature.

Intended learning outcomes:

The child:

  • Lists the properties of water;
  • Explains the mechanism of operation of hydroelectric power station;
  • Presents the structure of a water molecule in a graphic (artistic) way;
  • Actively conducts observations and predicts the results of experiments.


InitialActivating the prior knowledge – conversation about water characteristics (Creating the mind-map: What do we know about the water? What else do we want to know?)

Ongoing Described in each resource

Final – Observing the process of learning – formative evaluation

Pathway structure

Stage I – Socio-Cultural pillar

Investigating the qualities of water (color, weight, density) – simple observations and experiments with water

Stage II – Ecological and Economical pillars

Enriching children’s knowledge about hydropower – researching how water can become the source of energy. Building the simple water turbine, investigating the concept of clean/ ecological energy (renewable sources of energy)
