Join us as we build future leaders that are ready to tackle the global water crisis. The Educators Think Tank is a group of volunteers that have a passion for educating youth about the global water crisis and the work of Water Mission. Their focus is on educational programming for students and presenting the information in fun and interactive ways at schools, educational conferences, community events, and more.

Lessons in a Bucket

The Lessons in a Bucket® resources, created by the Educators Think Tank, include lessons, activities, worksheets and resources to share the global water crisis and the work of Water Mission with children in pre-kindergarten through 8th grade.

Use Lessons in a Bucket activities in your classroom, at home or with youth organizations to start engaging your own future leaders. Access the materials below.
