Understand what it means to be have no access to drinking water and clean sanitation.
Put yourself in someone else’s shoes:
- Based on a picture of people lacking access to water/sanitation, students imagine their story. Writing in role as a person in the picture they describe the daily implications of the water/sanitation situation on their life.
- The different stories (at least 2-3 on the same picture) are then read and shared in small groups so as to realize the impact of a water-related situation on people’s lives.
The teacher keeps track of the most important features, and then brings in the real story of the illustrated people to see how far our thoughts were from reality
