Colorado River Education Kits
The Colorado River Alliance would like to bring the River to you! We have two TEKS aligned take-home kits designed for 4th and 5th grade classroom settings. These kits are an excellent supplement or alternative for those schools who are unable to visit us at the Redbud Center and are FREE OF CHARGE. Currently we offer kits covering topics on wetlands, watersheds, water properties, and the water cycle. See below for a short synopsis of each kit.
Kits are reserved on a first come first served basis, and may be picked up at the Colorado River Alliance’s office anytime during business hours. Ideally, kits will not be utilized for more than one week’s time. Please click here for our online registration form.
Water Cycle in Action
The Water Cycle in Action Kit allows teachers to demonstrate the water cycle right in their own classrooms. This activity enables students to observe the different components of the water cycle; to learn about the effects pollution has on the water cycle; and to learn about the distribution of fresh water on Earth. The lessons in this kit provide students with the opportunity to brainstorm about the water cycle, observe a live demonstration of the water cycle, and build density columns representing the freshwater distribution on Earth.
