VR Tour For Std. 5 Ch. 6: Every Drop Counts
What's Included in Virtual tour of this chapter
In this chapter, we will know how rain is formed. Rainwater is the base of all life on earth. Water covers more than 71% of the earth’s surface. The water which is collected on the roof reaches the underground tank through the pipe, which connects both of these, then, this water is fetched out through the pump. Further, we will also learn how water is stored in Stepwell. They are wells or ponds in which the water is stored. We can fetch the water after descending a few steps to the water level. As responsible citizens, we should not waste water and should take steps to preserve and conserve them.
Virtual tour 1: The storage of rainwater
This tour will focus on the Storage of rainwater and Rainwater harvesting. We do wonder what phenomena cause’ rain. Is it the strong chilly winds or the dark clouds or a combination of both which causes rain? Well, we will get to know about it after the virtual tour. We will also learn about how rainwater is saved via natural and manmade structures.
Virtual tour 2: A step well structure
Stepwell is a multi-storied well. In ancient times step wells were used for social gatherings because the base of the well provides relief from the daytime heat. Apart from the ponds, we will also learn about other open sources of water, underground water is one of the purest forms of water, purified by the layers of soil.
