Our Water, Our Future

Grades: 4th - 5th

Welcome to Our Water, Our Future, a three-part water education program for 4th-5th grade students, addressing nature’s and urban water cycles, Tucson's water supply, water use, and water conservation. Students complete a pre-visit lesson including a video and then participate in an interactive one-hour presentation conducted in the classroom. After the presentation, each student receives a five-minute shower timer and an engaging activity booklet to reinforce newly acquired learning. While completing their activity booklets, students discover how to watch special videos with their family to learn more about being Water Smart! The presentation and related lessons are aligned with ADE standards. Our Water, Our Future is sponsored by Tucson Water and offered free of charge to Tucson-area schools. The Our Water, Our Future program was revised Summer 2019.
