Welcome to the Classroom Presenters page of the Children's Clean Water Festival website!
Classroom presentations are an important part of the Children's Clean Water Festival. Each year, water resource professionals teach 4th and 5th grade students about pollution prevention, conservation, aquatic organisms and ecology, and more.
Classroom presentations are intended to be interactive, energetic, and fun, as well as educative. Examples of past presentations include:
River Rangers: Follow the story of a water drop, and learn about the amazing process of cleaning and recycling water after we use it. Discover what YOU can do to help protect water quality.
The Living Stream: Discover how stream macro-invertebrates are indicators of stream water quality and habitat condition. Students then hunt for live macro-invertebrates in a large, shallow aquarium and examine them under microscopes.
Water Quality Bingo: Do you know where your drinking water comes from and the best ways to protect it? Test your knowledge in this interactive game and be the first to call out "BINGO!"
A Drop in the Bucket: Is the water we used today the same that was used by dinosaurs? Find out and discover just how much water is available to humans by estimating and calculating the percentage of available fresh water on Earth.
Giving a classroom presentation provides professionals with a unique opportunity to take their expertise to the classroom and inspire the future generation of environmental stewards!
