Drinking Water & Ground Water Kids’ Stuff

(www.epa.gov/safewater/kids/index.html)

Age Range: 5-18 (Grades K-12, with parental supervision)

 

The Environmental Protection Agency offer this website that has many FREE, interactive as well as downloadable PDF files that contain games, lessons, activities, and experiments that teach kids in grades K-12 about water. From the water cycle to filtration of drinking water, kids get an education on all aspects of water including underground wells and water treatment facilities.

All of the information is accompanied by colorful animations and illustrations making it very inviting to students. When you get to the site you will see 2 categories: For Kids and For Teachers separated by grade levels. Choose the level you are interested in to see the games and activities for that level.

When you are through exploring the menu items, click on “Other Stuff for Kids” on the left side bar. A new page opens with links to resources for additional lesson plans and activities such as: 

  • Homework resources
  • Student awards and contests
  • Games, quizzes, and more
  • Videos about the environment

Note: A few of the links are dead on the main page – but there is plenty of accessible info, notably the EPA pages and the USGS Water Education pages with many free lessons, coloring pages, and downloadable activities.
