I teach 2 classes of ceramics with over 30 kids in each. The sink is in
another room. The way I handle the situation is to use 5 gallon buckets, one
for dirty water, one for clean. I have a water table with the small pails
that kids use on halloween (i buy them for $.25 a few days after halloween).
I have 3 students on a water team, I use a different team each day, the
schedule is posted and students on the team get 10pts each time they have
water duty. They fill the small pails half way with water. after students
wash their hands they dump the water into the 5 gallon container. I have
several so that they don't get too full or too heavy, then they go into the
other room to empty and refill. It works well for me, if the students don't
do the job, they don't get the points. I also use lots of praise and give
bonus points for the best team. Its not perfect, but it seems to work pretty
