Wisconsin Water Week
Resources for Educators and Students
Attention educators! We would love for you and your students to engage in Wisconsin Water Week events, so we’re working with educational organizations who have thought of unique ways to increase awareness of water issues and opportunities for students during Wisconsin Water Week.
The Center for Watershed Science and Education at UW-Stevens Point has various resources and opportunities available for educators to explore groundwater with students. One resource is the Sand-Tank Groundwater Model, a hands-on tool made by UWSP students that is used to demonstrate how water and contaminants move through aquifers, various soil structures and watersheds. You can borrow this resource or get your own by completing a free workshop offered annually by the Center.
More information and a list of groundwater resources can be found on the website--https://www.uwsp.edu/cnr-ap/watershed/Pages/GWAwareness.aspx.

Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has multiple resources highlighting A Statewide Inquiry Experience - Wisconsin Water. Water can be an integral aspect of many scientific phenomena for student investigation. To get your students involved in water explorations before or during Wisconsin Water Week, check out the lessons and resources available at https://dpi.wi.gov/science/water
