Water education materials are comprehensive and complex, and it is important that teachers be given an opportunity to explore the full depth and scope of the materials. Therefore, EMWD recommends that teachers receive in-service training in the use of certain water education materials.

EMWD ensures that materials meet the requirements listed in the California State Frameworks for Science and History/Social Science, and that they cover general concepts appropriate for each grade level.

To see which standards are met by our programs, see California Content Standards.

General Concepts by Grade Level

Below are the recommended concepts for each grade level:

Grades K – 3 Educational materials emphasize the water cycle and home water saving activities.
Grades 4 – 6 Continue reinforcement of the water cycle. Introduce concepts of conservation and water delivery systems.
Grades 7 – 9 Introduce the responsibility of local water agencies, government and role of special interest groups. Begin thinking of the legal and social aspects of the supply/demand imbalance. Expand activities as needed.
Grades 10 – 12 Apply more advanced activities in the areas of science, social studies and economics.
