Students learn to distinguish the three states of water - solid, liquid, and gas - while playing a card match game.
A three dimensional landscape model shows a typical community with urban, agricultural, and industrial water uses. Students learn about water pollution using Kool-Aid, pudding, cocoa powder, and a spray bottle to simulate rain.
Students learn how worms help the environment by decomposing organic material. Students make their own mini-composting bin from a 2-liter bottle using soil, recycled newspaper and worms.
(*Note: Teachers who select this activity are required to provide 2-liter bottles for each student)
Students will learn about different native plants and recognize that changes to conditions in the environment may affect growth and development of plants. Students will choose among succulents, aloe vera and more to grow and take home.
New activity, hosted by the City of Rancho Cucamonga’s Environmental Programs. This hands-on activity teaches students the importance of reducing food waste at home and school. Students will learn about the EPA’s Food Recovery Hierarchy and discuss food waste in the landfills and the resources wasted when food is thrown away. Students will also discuss solutions for food waste including food reduction, food donation, and how to recycle food waste by composting. Perfect when paired with the vermicomposting activity!
Students will increase their understanding of preserving natural resources through waste reduction, and recycling. Students identify various materials found at home that are reusable or recyclable and the steps in the recycling process.
The Growing Native activity teaches students about the benefits of native plants, including water conservation and wildlife habitat. Seeds are used, colorful diagrams, and pictures to demonstrate the growth patterns of plants, from seeds to flowers, shrubs, and/or trees. Each student will also plant a seed to take home and grow his or her own California native plant.
