PlayPumps International has launched KnowH2O, a website designed for schools and community organizations to build student awareness of global water issues and how they can work to help address the world’s water crisis. www.knowh2o.org The site is centered around the actions of Learn, Teach, Play, Connect, and Act—and it contains teacher-tested tools and interactive resources such as online videos, water resource maps, web banners, and games. These resources help students truly understand the impact and extent of the water crisis.
For example, check out the interactive “Water IQ” quiz to challenge your water knowledge, and check back in the upcoming weeks for several special tools that allow educators to share their experiences teaching students about water.
In addition, PlayPumps International partnered with the National Youth Leadership Council (NYLC) and a committee of dedicated teachers to develop the lesson plans featured in the Teach section of the website. The lessons plans are offered for grades K – 12 and use various subject areas to educate students on water issues. They are easily downloaded and we hope that you will share them with your friends.
Connect provides links to social networking websites such as Facebook and ThinkMTV and many resources we think you will find helpful and interesting.
The site also features a creative fundraising tool for schools and individuals to "Sponsor a PlayPump" . You can build your own KnowH2O page with your own story, add a photo, set your own fundraising goals, and acknowledge your donors.
KnowH2O is a resource providing helpful information and numerous ways for people to act. We hope you find it useful and encourage you to send any suggestions you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org.
