Waterrun


This is an interactive game to be played in the classroom. The game is designed to help children experience how difficult it is to get water in some countries, where children often have to walk many miles to get water and what the implications of this are. In the game, children need to build a virtual well and fill it with water.
They do this by first answering a range of questions on the topic of water. Children then need to take turns in running to fetch water. Each cup or bucket of water means the water level in the well is raised. However, it is a race against time, and the children need to get their answers right before being able to start filling the well with water.
