Classroom Presentations

These interactive hands-on water-related activities are taught by professional Water Education Specialists. Each activity takes about 50 minutes to present and is packed with essential information that meets stringent Science Content Standards for California Public Schools. 

Our selection of interactive classroom activities include:

The Life Box: Used to introduce the four essential factors for life (soil, sun, air, water), with special focus on how plants, wildlife and human communities have formed around water. (50 minutes)

Sum of The Parts: Students demonstrate how humans contribute to the pollution of a river as it flows through a water-shed. They learn to recognize the sources of water pollution and how everyone’s “contribution” can be reduced. (50 minutes)

The Incredible Journey:
With a roll of the die, students interactively simulate the movement of water as it moves through the water cycle. They record their journey and identify and describe the movement of water through the water cycle as it circulates and changes its molecular state. (50-90 minutes)

Who Dirtied The Bay: Students participate in an interactive history lesson that demonstrates how California settlers contributed to the pollution of San Pablo Bay and California’s waterways. This lesson teaches children to interpret, analyze and come up with solutions to prevent urban water pollution. (50 minutes) 

A House of Seasons: By constructing (cutting and pasting) a collage of pictures, students lean the role water plays in each of Earth's changing seasons. This activity engages students to think critically about the four seasons and how water use changes throughout the year. (50 minutes) 

Water Facts: Using a "slide glide" and colorful handouts, students identify water use processes and calculate how much water is routinely used around the house and in the agricultural community. The activity emphasizes simple ways to conserve water by modifying daily water use habits. (30-45 minutes)

Who Pays for This?

State mandates require local water purveyors to implement and promote water conservation measures. The services provided through our School Education Program are paid for through a combination of grant funding and local water rate revenue.
