Water connects us all. Explore how water moves through our world, traveling from place to place in different forms. Water that fell on our yard or in a river today could be in another country in a week or month. Connect your water to that of children all over the world as we look at maps and globes to trace the path of water. We will learn to play “stump the family” with tricky water questions, take part in a virtual tea gathering with anyone who wants to join us, near or far, and create teacup mini-birdbaths for our gardens.
● Pre-packed creativity kits, designed especially for the specific class to be picked up at The Phipps. If a student wants to join us from another city or state, creativity kits can be mailed. “Long-distanced” families can participate together this summer.
● Pre-recorded video instructions for different activities (so you can watch and participate when it works for YOU), and guided, fun activity ideas.
● Daily options during the week of your class for show and tell online sharing.
● Scheduled virtual visits, with flexibility to accommodate a family’s needs. Students can also catch up with instructions and via emails if needed.
● Everything kids need to create their own part of a collaborative community art project. These art installations will be temporary, so students can create, share, and then take it home to keep.
● In addition, students will have the option to send in photos and videos of their experiences, to be featured in Just Add Water weekly news recap videos.
