  • American Water Works Association This site has 1 minute educational videos for students, online games of all sorts related to drinking water (helpful hint: click on the kids tab then click on the “Find the answer!”)
  • EPA WaterSense Go to the “WaterSense for Kids” tab on the right hand toolbar. There are activities for students as well as a teacher’s guide.

Additional Interactive Water Information Websites

  • Water Saver Home Excellent interactive feature that shows room by room in a house where water is used and excellent easy to understand statistics for each water using aspect of a home.
  • Home Water Works Similar to above, click on the house and it shows aspects of different water usage. It gives pop up tips. This would be engaging for older elementary students although they would need the list of approximately 20 simple questions to ask their parents before they complete the on-line questions. 
  • Water Use it Wisely Have a vast amount of water saving tips and educational material applicable for all levels.

Recycle City

  • This website has information for teachers as well as students. It has an interactive game “Dumptown” . At first glance it looks like the game would be for elementary students, but upon further investigation, it has more involved concepts and could be very useful for older students.
  • There is a separate Teachers information section.

Republic Services

  • Information for all ages on landfills, recycling, how to make a difference, as well as related videos. There is a particularly a good video on the life cycle of a cereal box. On the top toolbar, go to “for the Planet” and then Education resources.
