School is now back in session for most students! And with that, this is a reminder that we have a lot of information, material and resources pertaining to water available for students and educators.
In fact, we have a whole section here on DrinkTap, our Kid's Place, that is specifically for students and educators learning and teaching about water. It's divided into six parts:
The Story of Drinking Water (interactive game about water)
History of Distribution (timeline that illustrates water distribution history)
Water Videos (our “Whaddya Know About H2O?” video series)
Places to Visit (learn about water in-person)
Water Websites (website directory to get more information about water)
Products from AWWA (AWWA educational materials about water)
There are a few great resources and ideas in this section that are especially worth pointing out. As is highlighted on the Water Websites webpage, we have free classroom lessons on AWWA's website for teachers that include presentations for both elementary and high school children, along with lesson plans, handouts and quizzes.
Our “Whaddya Know About H2O?” 29-part video series covers a wide range of water topics, including the forms of water, the water cycle and how water treatment works.
And as is mentioned on the Places to Visit webpage, contacting your local water utility to visit their treatment plant is a great idea for a field trip or for a day out of the house.
Definitely tap into the great resources we have for students and educators looking to learn and teach all about water.
