Classrooms In Action
The SWFWMD helps schools get involved in watery projects. We provide money, information and ideas. Interested? Ask your teacher about Splash! Mini-Grants, and your class could get in on the action too.
Here are some examples of what schools have done recently with Splash! Mini-Grants:
Box Cities at Citrus Springs Elementary
Mrs. Crotsley's second-grade class designed their own cities out of boxes and then developed a water plan for them.
Butterflies and Barrels at Lutz Elementary School
Students monitored the weather, designed a butterfly garden and even installed gutters and rain barrels at their school.
3D Posters at Frostproof Middle-Senior
Students designed beautiful 3D posters involving the water cycle. This one shows some of the sources of water pollution.
Field Surveys and Restoration Work at Crystal Springs Preserve
Home-schooled students at Crystal Springs Preserve didn't mind getting a little wet while they were learning about watersheds. They used their grant to help with restoration projects and biodiversity studies at the spring and along the Hillsborough River.
