Our team can also come to you! We provide free visits to schools within our Service Area on Mondays and Fridays. Offerings include hands-on, place-based lessons that are customized to your school site and schoolyard. Classroom visits can also serve to prepare students to submit entries to our Poster and Infographic Contest, or Water Wise Challenge.
|Program||Descriptions (All programs are about 45 minutes)||Grade|
|Water Cycle Bracelet||Students journey through the water cycle through scientific demos and a dance. They build a bracelet to document their adventure along the way||T-K|
|Compost Critters||Students observe a soil filtration demo and explore a sample of compost to explore the relationship between soil and water conservation. They will get up close and personal with worms and other compost residents to discover the role of decomposers in building healthy soil.||2-6|
|Schoolyard Investigations||Using their schoolyard as their classroom, students will investigate and map habitat and biodiversity, water cycle processes, and/or identify opportunities for water conservation at their schools. Investigations can often be tailored to your schoolyard, grade and concept preferences.||2-12|
|Where Does Our Water Come From?|
|Slow the Flow in Urban Watersheds||Students explore the changes human development in our watershed has had on the water cycle locally through mapping and discussion. They work in groups to brainstorm solutions to reduce urban runoff, protect our groundwater and then explore existing examples of green infrastructure that are being utilized to help conserve water. Great for introducing the Infographic Contest!||6-12|
