With links to weather, climate change, energy and public health, water is one of today's most important environmental topics. EE Week provides numerous educational resources to help educators engage students in learning about water quality, water conservation and water's connections to many other environmental concerns, such as climate change and energy.
- School Water Audit School water audits provide a fun and educational way for students to examine the ways that they use water everyday, and to encourage classmates, teachers, and school administrators to make their school more water-efficient and cost-effective.
- Water Bee Quizzes With our partners at WET in the City and The Groundwater Foundation, EE Week developed these Water Bee Quizzes for grades K-4 and 5-8. They are 10-question, multiple choice quizzes to test students' knowledge of water quality and water conservation.
- Water Curricula EE Week provides access to standards-based lesson plans on water scarcity, water quality and water conservation organized by grade level and easily implemented in the classroom.
- Water-Energy Connection Conserving water saves energy, and vice versa. The water-energy connection is complex, but it provides an excellent opportunity to get students thinking about the interrelatedness of ecological and environmental concerns. EE Week provides articles, links, videos and graphics on this important topic.
- Water Resources EE Week's list of water resources provides links to online tools, information and organizations with objective, scientific information about water topics including conservation, scarcity and quality.
- Water Quality Testing In partnership with World Water Monitoring Day and Earth Force, EE Week presents these grade-appropriate tools to help educators get students involved biological and chemical testing of a local river or stream.
