Williams Elementary Water Education Day

Friday, April 3, 2009.

We need PLT to provide a station to be run 9 times, for about 25 minutes each, with a 45 minute break for lunch (to be provided.)

Ideally we need two volunteers to run the PLT activity "Water Wonders"

or another activity that can be completed in 25 minutes. Reading a water cycle book can be incorporated too. (I have one.) Or, another activity that someone feels comfortable doing.

4-5 grades: 9 - 9:30 (3, 25 min. sessions)

2-3 grades: 9:45 - 11:15 (3, 25 min. sessions)

break: 11:15 - 12

K-1: 12 - 1:45 (3, 25 min. sessions)
