Water Wizards teaches 4th-6th grade students about water and its importance to the planet. Students participate in hands-on learning experiences that encourage inquiry, teach basic information about water, and develop awareness about this valuable resource. They explore the water cycle, watersheds and pollution; study water usage in their home; and conduct experiments exploring salinity, density, hardness and taste (Is bottled water really better?). Youth also take action on a water issue in their community. The program balances the need for critical information about water with discovery through the process of doing science. It also empowers kids to know they can make a difference in their communities.
This is the facilitator's guide which allows leaders to conduct the program with prompts and instructions for activities. When you purchase the facilitator's guide, you will receive a digital copy of handouts and materials to assist with program facilitation.
There is an accompanying Youth Lab Book for youth to use with the program found here.
