In this activity, students learn the importance of water conservation as all living things need water to survive. Using Ola the orca’s water conservation tips as a thought starter, students play a word game, and make Ola’s origami fortune teller to play with their friends and share the conservation message.
Here are a few tips on how to conserve and protect water:
In B.C. we are powered by water. The electrical system stretches across each region of the province and the traditional territories of Indigenous Nations. We have 30 hydroelectric plants and a network of over 80,000 kilometres of power lines that transport electricity from our generating stations over mountain tops, through river valleys to homes and businesses in B.C. We have the cleanest generation in Western North America and amongst the lowest greenhouse gas emissions of any utility in North America.
We recognize that while water is core to our business, it also holds spiritual and cultural values to Indigenous Nations, and environmental importance to all communities in B.C. We’ll work together to protect the province’s water resources and honour these multiple uses and values as we move forward. Check out Environmental responsibility for ways BC Hydro is protecting and sharing the resource.
Unscramble the tangled lights and have fun solving the riddle.
It takes water to make everything we buy, wear and eat. Discover your “water footprint” and think of smart ways to save.
Play a game to find out about energy-efficient electronics and behaviours.
