The district staff would like to start an Envirothon team in Miami County. We will be looking for 6-7 students, in grades 7 through 12.
The Envirothon is a friendly competition to test a team of students' knowledge in five different areas: aquatics, forestry, soils, wildlife, and a current issue. If interested, please contact the district office.
A water festival is a fun-filled day focused on educating youth about our natural resources. A water festival includes multiple hands-on activities that will teach children how to protect our natural resources.
Ideally festivals are setup outdoors, but can be accommodated to be inside if weather is not cooperating.
Students are split up by class or groups of 15 to 20, depending on the age and time frame. They will then rotate around to different sessions. Water festivals are designed to bring a field trip experience to the school at no cost.
The sample schedule below shows how easily 80 students can participate in four activities in just over 90 minutes.
8:45 AM - 9:05 AM
9:10 AM - 9:30 AM
9:35 AM - 9:55 AM
10 AM - 10:10:20 AM
