Under an Ohio Environmental Education Fund grant, the Clermont Soil and Water Conservation District worked with Greenacres Water Quality Project LLC to develop a Rain Garden Lesson Guide tied to Ohio Academic Content Standards. With this guide, schools can turn their rain gardens into outdoor learning labs.
The Lesson Guide provides six separate activities. Each activity has separate options for elementary (3-5), middle (6-8) and high school (9-12) students. Links to PDFs of the entire guide as well as the individual lessons are provided below:
For in-class assistance with any of these activities, contact the Clermont Soil & Water Conservation District’s Education Specialist at (513) 732-7075, ext. 5
