Update: Due to the pandemic and school shutdowns, students have been working from home. USD staff have modified our program so that it can be done entirely virtually. We have been able to provide over 70 presentations in the 2021 school year and look forward to having this option continue for the 2022 school year.
During the 60 minute presentation we use story-telling, a DVD, exercises and a hands-on laboratory exercise to get students thinking about water pollution. We support our presentation by providing teachers with a workbook for use prior to our presentation so the students are prepared. As gifts for the students we provide erasers, recycled rulers, a placemat that is used during the exercises and a workbook to reinforce the lesson!
The lesson meets criteria of both the California State Standards and the new Next Generation Science Standards and we can talk with you to discuss how our program can fit in with your curriculum needs.
To book a presentation directly go to our scheduler widget, we will respond in the next 24 hours to confirm your presentation. Please schedule your presentation at least 48 hours in advance to allow our speakers time to prepare.
When a teacher schedules a classroom presentation with USD environmental compliance staff, this 8-page teacher booklet is sent to the class prior to the presentation. The booklet supplies background information on the presentation, including useful vocabulary words, and also provides supplemental exercises that the teacher can do in the classroom after the presentation.
Let us show you why we have delivered over 500 classroom presentations.
