To slow the spread of coronavirus we have cancelled non-essential in person meetings and travel until further notice.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to organise a virtual session.
Foundation to Grade 2
Do you know where your drinking water comes from? Where does the wastewater go? Students will explore the water cycle and the impacts we can have on it by saving water around the home and only flushing the 3 Ps in this interactive session.
Kinetic Catchment is a hands-on, problem-solving science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) activity.
Students become engineers for a day to gain an appreciation for how their own water is delivered. Working in teams, they design drinking water, sewerage and recycled water systems for a community. Each team needs to consider costs and the environment when constructing their designs.
Every day we can make choices about what to drink. But have you ever thought of the health, environmental and economic implications of what you drink? In this session we use experiments, demonstrations and fun activities to find out acidity, sugar content and how much we should be drinking.
We understand that people have a range of learning styles and that some students are kinesthetic or tactile learners - they learn best in a hands-on session while physically moving and doing. The Water Cycle Yoga Session is designed to help tactile learners process and retain information about the water cycle.
For school aged children, yoga and mindfulness can reduce anxiety and stress. Yoga has also been shown to improve:
• physical and mental health
• balance, strength, endurance, and aerobic capacity
• focus, memory, self-esteem, academic performance, and classroom behaviour
We hope you enjoy sharing this yoga session with your students. No materials are required; students will need some room to move and lie down.
There are 2 versions:
13 minutes, when students are calm and ready for yoga.
18 minutes, begins with a 'shake your sillies out' exercise
Your students will become engineers in our Taps and Toilets simulation. We will send you instructions and materials at no charge. You will also need scissors, tape, cups or bowls (optional, to show students where the hills are) and coloured straws or paper for pipes. Email us for details.
