Our Water, Our Future

Our Water, Our Future is a three-part interdisciplinary program for fourth and fifth grade learners. It addresses the following concepts: the water cycle, water supply, water quality, water use, and water conservation. It includes three pre-visit classroom lessons, one post-visit lesson, and an interactive one-hour on-site presentation conducted in the classroom. Students are given five-minute shower timers to encourage them to use water more consciously. The presentation and related activities are aligned with ADE standards. Our Water, Our Future is sponsored by Tucson Water and offered free of charge to Tucson-area teachers and students.  Materials can be downloaded and presentations can be scheduled at www.outreach-scheduling.org.
