Water 3-5

About this Experience

Discover water's long history as it moves and cycles around our planet. Water is an essential resource for life on Earth and is in fixed supply. Humans use fresh water for many purposes, but pollution can render it unavailable and unsuitable for use. Your students will become stewards of water by learning ways to preserve this key element in our lives.


NOTE: The Water program uses latex; please let us know if you have latex allergies in your school so we may adapt our materials accordingly.


PROGRAM OPTIONS: Water is available as either a large group assembly or an in-depth residency.

ASSEMBLY MAX: 250 students.

DURATION: 50 minutes (all 3-5 assemblies)
