Greenlee County has conducted water education using the Two Weeks of
Water curriculum, mainly targeting all 4th graders in Clifton and Duncan
schools. The curriculum consists of 10 lessons: 5 dealing with water quality
and 5 with water conservation and includes numerous hands-on activities.
Audience: The Two Weeks of Water curriculum is for 3rd and 4th
grade students and in Greenlee County was used to target 4th graders in
Clifton and Duncan Schools.
Current Status: The program is inactive due to staffing difficulties
and 4-H related priorities.
Impacts: Encouraged teachers to emphasize water resource education
as part of their science curriculum.
Lessons Learned: Direct communication with the teachers and a
free copy of the curriculum provided enough incentive to interest teachers
in this program.
