Students from NurtureStars Pre-school are asked to bring two (1.5 litres) of empty bottles for the water rationing exercise. Their bottles are filled at the pre-school as water supply is turned off for 4 hours to simulate a shortage of water. These children learn to go on their daily activities with the inconvenience of no water, hence learning the importance of water and conserving water.
