Water Education

The District offers support and materials to teachers in the Twentynine Palms area within District boundaries.  From lesson plans to classroom presentations, the District's water education program has a variety of means to assist area educators teaching children about water.

From the Ground Up (Classroom Presentation)

The TPWD feels the best way to develop wise users of our natural resources is through education.  Let us provide you with a stimulating, age appropriate and fun-filled educational experience.

Presentations are designed to support grade level state curriculum standards and will assist students in discovering basic water concepts.  The class covers grade appropriate information on water sources, source protection and conservation.  In addition, individual grade level presentations address:

5th Grade:  Earth's fresh water supply, the water cycle, and drinking water treatment.

All classroom programs are offered at no cost to participating schools within the TPWD service area.  Presentations are approximately 60-70 minutes and include a combination of short videos, discussion, and classroom activities.

To schedule a program please call the District Secretary at 367-1792 x 308, Monday through Friday.
