World Water Day is Monday, March 22, 2021. No matter where you live in the world, from Minnesota to Mumbai, water plays a vital role in the health and well being of your community.
The Water Guardians program takes students on a journey down the vital and vibrant Mississippi River from its headwaters to the Gulf of Mexico, teaching students about local and global water issues. Designed for grades 5-8, this free web-based set of 5 lesson plans brings discussions of global citizenship, service, and the global water crisis into your classrooms, whether virtual or in-person.
We’re thrilled with the positive response we have received since launching this program. One teacher in Minnesota shared the following with us:
“I just wanted to let you know that all of my classes found the videos fun, and they have led to a lot of wonderful discussions about how our actions can affect so much more in the world than we think about on the surface.”
