Da Drops is a water education program designed for 1st-3rd grade students, focusing on the water cycle, water supply, and water conservation in the Tucson Basin. The program includes three related activities and a lively, hands-on, one-hour presentation conducted in the classroom. Each student receives a small cup to use for brushing teeth and saving water at home, and a booklet of exciting activities to reinforce newly acquired understandings. The presentation and related activities are aligned with ADE standards. Da Drops is sponsored by Tucson Water and offered free of charge to Tucson-area schools.
A modified version of Da Drops is presented for the Oro Valley Water Utility as Oro Valley Conservation Kids.
