Lessons learned at Water Festival

Fourth graders in Warren left the classroom Wednesday for a lesson about the earth’s most abundant resource.

The children took part in the annual Community Water Festival at Perkins Park in Warren. The outdoor educational event is hosted by the Trumbull Soil and Water Conservation District. Students visited various stations and learned about water as a natural resource, pollution and the animals that inhabit our streams.

“This is real life, and this is something that students will remember for the rest of their life,” said Kathleen Fetcenko, fourth grade teacher at Lincoln K-8 Schools. “It’s also part of our science curriculum, so it does help the students. When they are on their own, they themselves can view it and say, ‘I remember learning that at the Water Festival Park.””

Students also learned about water molecules and how they travel through the water cycle.
