COOL TOOLS TO HELP YOUR SCHOOL CELEBRATE NATIONAL WATER WEEK
National Water Week is March 16-22 2015 (coinciding with World Water Day on 22 March) it’s time to start thinking about activities learners can do to heighten their awareness around water conservation and mark this event!
WESSA have put together a selection of free, fun and learner-friendly resources to help you plan your school’s Water activities:
miniSASS is a simple tool which can be used by anyone to monitor the health of a river. You collect a sample of macroinvertebrates (small animals) from the water, and depending on which groups are found, you have a measure of the general river health and water quality in that river.
More tools and information on this ground breaking citizen science project may be found on the new miniSASS website . Don’t forget to register on the website and upload your school’s miniSASS findings!
WESSA Share-Net Water Week Pack
Share-Net, WESSA’s environmental education resource project, has put together an exciting resource pack to support education around National Water Week and World Water Day. Click here for more information.
