Adjustments due to COVID-19: While stay-at-home orders are in place, the KIDS for the BAY staff team deliver their programs through Distance Learning in partnership with teachers, including online resources, lesson plans and video demonstrations. In addition, teachers, students and parents are invited to explore At Home Activities to stay engaged until schools return to their regular schedule.
In the KIDS for the BAY Storm Drain Rangers Program (SDR), third through fifth grade students learn about the San Francisco Bay estuary ecosystem, creek-bay-ocean connections and reducing stormwater pollution. Students lead Schoolwide Assemblies and organize Zero Waste events to teach about watershed stewardship and reducing trash and waste by practicing the Five Rs – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot and Refuse. The SDR includes four two-hour classroom lessons that support Next generation Science Standards and Common Core Standards, a trash clean-up project and a student-led Schoolwide Assembly. Partner teachers receive hands-on training and ongoing support through our Blue Watershed Classrooms Project.
