The Children's Water Fiesta is held every fall. The Water Conservation Office invites Santa Fe Public Schools 4th grade classes to participate in a wonderful day of learning about water! Fiesta activities will cover a wide range of core curriculum areas including language arts, math, science, social studies, visual arts, and health and wellness. Presenters will present water related facts, concepts, and values through fun, hands-on learning activities. Be sure to check back for details surrounding the 2016 Water Fiesta.
Since 2002, the Children’s Water Fiesta has been introducing students to new ideas, options and solutions to help teach them the importance of saving water for the future. During the event, hundreds of fourth-grade students learn about all facets of water, from conservation and wastewater to ecosystems, watersheds and pollution. Experts present water-related facts, concepts and values through fun, hands-on learning activities. Students have the opportunity to play Water Jeopardy, act as water droplets moving through the water cycle, and observe water bugs up close and personal. The activities are designed to cover core teaching curricula in math, science, social studies, language and visual arts, and health and wellness.
