Water for Life

...Water for Life allows children to explore just how water supports life on our planet through cooperatively building a community with props and watch water at work. They then explore what they can do to help protect this precious resource. This is an inquiry-based opportunity that fully engages participants in hands-on learning and incorporates several cross-curricular competencies.

Please note:

  • Water for Life is one hour in length.
  • Please no more than 30 students
  • Water for Life is valued at $250+gst*

The following is required for the program:
