The in-person 2022 Children’s Clean Water Festival has been cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.

However, we have crafted a series of lesson plans for 4th grade teachers. These six water-focused lessons can be incorporated into your learning. The lessons support 4th grade science standards and can be used in succession or individually and are available now.

We look forward to seeing you in person in 2023!

The Children’s Clean Water Festival is a free, day-long environmental education event engaging over 1,400 fourth-grade students from throughout the Portland, Oregon metro area. Each year, students from 20-25 schools come to a college campus for a day of learning and fun that includes more than 40 hands-on, water-focused activities, classroom presentations, and stage shows that reinforce STEM, Common Core, and Next Generation Science concepts.

Throughout the day, students move from one activity to another every 25 minutes to explore a variety of water-related topics including water science, ecology, native fish, water quality, and ways they can protect and conserve natural resources.

The Festival’s more than 75 classroom presenters and exhibitors represent a variety of public, private, and non-profit organizations that are committed to water and environmental education. And, an additional 50 volunteers play a variety of roles to help make the Festival a success.
