Dear educators and parents / caregivers,
To say the planning committee of the Niagara Children’s Water Festival was disappointed to cancel the 2020 festival would be an understatement. We greatly missed this opportunity to show students, teachers and parents the passion we have to teach about water and what we do as water professionals.
However, we couldn't let the year go by without working together to engage our student community and share the knowledge and enthusiasm we have for this amazing natural resource. Our partners have come together and compiled resources and activities for a "Virtual" Water Festival. A four-day lesson plan of water education for you to share with your students through remote learning.
Thank you for your interest in the Water Festival. We hope you and your students find something fun and informative in the following activities.
Niagara Children’s Water Festival Steering Committee
We've designed a set of learning activities for a four-day Virtual Water Festival. Each day focuses on one of the four water themes.
There's resources for each theme related to the learning objectives of our in-person activity centres that would be part of our usual festival.
Students may choose one or two activities each day based on which ones interest them most, or teachers and parents / caregivers may assign them based on which ones best complement your curriculum.
