(April 7, 2021) – The Oak Lodge Water Services District proudly participates in the annual Children's Clean Water Festival. In the past, the event was a one-day hands-on water-focused environmental education opportunity for more than 1,500 local 4th grade students from over 20 local schools, hosted on a local college campus. This year, the event is virtual.
Beginning April 1, six water-focused lesson plans – which District staff assisted in developing – were provided to over 600 fourth grade teachers, including those in the North Clackamas County School District and the Oregon City School District.
The lesson plans explore a variety of water-related topics including water science, ecology, native fish, water quality, and ways they can protect and conserve natural resources, and reinforce STEM, Common Core, and Next Generation Science concepts.
Check out the lessons plans linked below to explore water. You can simply click on the links to learn more about each topic while watching videos, doing activities, and hearing from folks working in the water sector right here in Oregon! Watch now: virtual.cleanwaterfestival.org
