We offer classroom programs for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades that are grade-specific and are NGSS and CCSS compliant. The 3rd grade program is centered around the properties of water, including its different states. The 4th grade class looks at the history of water in California, as well as California water geography and rainfall. The 5th grade class dives deeper into the water cycle and the treatment of drinking water. These classes can be adapted for special needs students.
Classroom Programs are available for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students for public, private and home schools within our service area. Schools outside of our service area are not eligible for the program.
