Water Safety Lessons for Children
SipSafe Water Safety Lessons are designed to introduce water safety into the preschool classroom by providing basic, scientific knowledge about how water plays a vital role in our lives. Children learn why water is such a valuable resource, how it is used, and its characteristics. Using fun and engaging activities, the lessons teach concepts to help children be “water heroes” by reducing lead exposure so everyone can SipSafe.
Lessons are divided into four sections by age group: ages 1 and 2, age 3, age 4, and age 5. The lessons were created to be taught in the specific order that is provided in each unit. Teaching the lessons in order will provide scaffolding to ensure the students gain an understanding of SipSafe objectives. However, these lessons were developed so that each one can be taught as a stand-alone lesson if needed.
