Adult supervision is required at all times.

Background

Why are rivers and lakes important? Have students name all the ways they use water every day (washing dishes, brushing their teeth, taking a bath, watering plants). Where does that water come from? Have they ever gone fishing? Have they ever gone water skiing or sailing? What ways do we use water for fun? On a large chart, write down the students' ideas and suggestions. Discuss the importance of clean water and keeping our rivers and lakes clean.
