This 30-minute presentation teaches 5th grade students about the Earth’s water supply, the water cycle, and how to keep our sea toxic free.

Our Water (Grades 3-5, NGSS-standards aligned)

This 30-minute presentation provides students a comprehensive understanding of the San Francisco water system and the importance of water conservation as a way of life. Throughout the presentation, students travel through history with an exploration into how San Francisco’s regional water system became “One Water SF”. Students will understand the importance of the watershed to the interconnected ecology within the city including the biodiversity (plants, animals, and food) growing in our city.

Food to Flowers: Become a Geo-Detective! (Grades K-5, NGSS and Eco-literacy standards aligned)

In this 20-minute presentation, students become their own 'geo-detectives' in this lesson, investigating to solve the mystery of landfill waste in San Francisco with the 4R's and the power of composting with the FBI (fungi, bacteria and invertebrates).

Our Common Future: Creating a Zero Waste World for All (Grades 6-12, Eco-literacy standards aligned)

This 20-minute presentation engages students in the ways environmental racism creates injustices in local and global communities. Founded in environmental justice principles, Creating a Zero Waste World teaches concepts of planned obsolescence, fast fashion, and circular economy and empowers students to become part of the environmental movement through refuse, reuse, recycling, composting.
