Students take Little Lily for a home visit. Using a "Little Lily's Water Adventure" sheet (see image below), the family counts the number of sinks, toilets, shower/tubs, dishwashers, and washing machines in the house. Students also indicate on the sheet which of three water conservation books the child reads during Little Lily's visit. Finally, the student creates a journal entry to bring back to the class to share their adventures with Little Lily. The journal entries are added to a classroom book, "The Water Adventures of Little Lily", for students to read as desired.
Students draw pictures and write about Little Lily's visit to their house. Here she is with a bike.
Students can take photos with Little Lily to create their journal entry, which is kept in a classroom book.
Froggie Care Packages & Other Goodies
We keep the students excited about Little Lily. After a student brings
Little Lily home for a visit, he/she receives a certificate, frog
tattoo, and has his/her name added to a large classroom poster. In
addition, the Water Conservation Office sends a Froggie Care Package to
Little Lily every month. This is packed with a letter and goodies for
both the students, parents, and/or classroom. Add the letters to the
classroom book, "The Water Adventures of Little Lily." If Little Lily
ends her visit before the end of the school year, we continue to send
packages to keep the water conservation messages and environmental
education going. Here are images of a few of the items you may receive.
Every student receives a certificate
for taking Little Lily home and sharing
their journal entry.
Students begin to recognize
the WaterSense logo through
a classroom puzzle.
Don't forget the family! Parents
receive brochures to send the
water conservation message
