try your local water board for information and maybe education resources..

ours have visits and open days, along with a web site.. not checked if it is suitable for the younger ones but maybe some could be used and adapted.

I haven't 'done' it - but would keep it all very simple - something along the lines of

 

Rain

Reservoir

Pumping station/Waterworks - where it is cleaned to make it safe for us to drink

Taps

 

Simples! :D

 

You could go into the whole pumped from underground and boreholes and all that malarky - but don't think that i would bother too much about that! :1b

I would probably go along the lines of rain in mountains and streams/rivers. Visit a local river or stream and talk about where the water comes from - try to make it practical so they can actually see what happens.

You could use piping, guttering, tubes and bottles with the bottoms cut off in your water play to make irrigation systems so they can understand the transportation of water. Pumps would also be good. Just do everything through play I suppose
