In appreciation to teachers who encourage student participation, we are holding a special drawing for teachers with 8 or more student entries from their classroom. The drawing for a $200 gift certificate from Art Supply Warehouse will take place at the Youth Water Poster Contest Exhibit and Awards Reception in February 2019.
This 20-page activity book is filled with facts, coloring areas, fill-in-the-blank slots, word searches and word scrambles that keep students learning about the Water Cycle, their local watershed and how they can protect it. You can download the activity book here.
Water as a renewable resource is depicted in this 36×24 inch color poster. Water is renewed again and again by the natural hydrologic cycle where water evaporates, transpires from plants, rises to form clouds, and returns to the earth as precipitation.
