Activity Name: How much water do we use daily? in Water in our life

Activity Description:

How much water do we use daily? in Water in our life - Class 6 Science Experiment

In this activity, you will estimate the amount of water your family uses in a day and consider ways to reduce water consumption. You will record your estimates in a table and also calculate the potential water savings.

Required Items:

  1. Pen or pencil
  2. Paper or worksheet
  3. Calculator (optional)

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Begin by creating a table with two columns: “Water Usage Activity” and “Estimated Water Usage (in liters or gallons).”
  2. Think about the different activities in your daily routine that involve water usage. Some common examples may include:
    • Showering or bathing
    • Flushing the toilet
    • Brushing teeth
    • Washing dishes
    • Washing clothes
    • Watering plants or garden
    • Drinking water
  3. Estimate the amount of water used for each activity and write it in the “Estimated Water Usage” column. You can use your knowledge and common sense to make reasonable estimates. For example, a typical shower may use around 15-20 liters (4-5 gallons) of water, while flushing a toilet may use around 6-10 liters (1.5-2.5 gallons).
  4. Once you have estimated the water usage for each activity, calculate the total estimated water usage by summing up all the values in the “Estimated Water Usage” column. This will give you an idea of how much water your family uses in a day.
  5. After recording the estimated water usage, consider ways to reduce water consumption. Think about possible changes or habits you could adopt to conserve water. For each activity, write down the potential water savings in the table. For instance, if you reduce your shower time by 2 minutes, estimate how much water you could save.
  6. Review your table and reflect on the estimated water usage and potential water savings. Consider the impact of these numbers and how small changes in daily habits can lead to significant water conservation.

Experiment Observations:

  • Estimated water usage for different activities (showering, toilet flushing, etc.)
  • Potential water savings for each activity


  • This activity involves estimating water usage, so the values recorded will be approximate. It’s important to emphasize that these are estimates and not precise measurements.
  • Encourage participants to be mindful of their water usage habits and focus on realistic ways to reduce consumption without compromising personal hygiene or health.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

This activity helps us become aware of the amount of water we use in our daily lives and encourages us to think about ways to reduce our water consumption.

By understanding our water usage patterns and making small changes, we can contribute to water conservation efforts and promote a more sustainable future.
