Interactive Learning Activities for the Water Heroes Website

Proj. #:4728
Description: The mandate of Friends of Ecological and Environmental Learning (FEEL) is to further public awareness education and understanding of the management and use of Ontario ecosystems. The HMK Childrens Water Festival (HMKCWF) is the champion project of Friends of Ecological and Environmental Learning (FEEL). The HMKCWF is an annual event which provides free water education to over a thousand elementary students from the Trillium Lakelands District School Board. Over the two day festival children have the opportunity to visit 40-47 different interactive activity centres that relay messages about water. A Water Hero website was developed to provide an easy means for classes to enter their water saving ideas for the Big Splash contest. The purpose of this project is to develop content for the Water Heroes website that would provide additional fun and interesting tools and activities to promote further use of the website. The aim is to have children classes and their families go to the site to learn more about water in an interactive way and spend some time on the site. The site could have 1) fun facts 2) links to other sites 3) water based games and 4) water trivia.
