Classroom Materials

In an effort to continue water conservation education, the Cities of Northglenn, Thornton and Westminster are working to provide Teachers with interactive materials they can use in their classroom. Find them here.

Water Festival

Since 2004, the Northglenn-Thornton-Westminster Water Festival has hosted more than 12,000 4th and 5th grade students in an effort to create water conscious kids. This exciting event will take place in the Spring of 2019.

The Water Festival engages students with topics such as water conservation, the history of Colorado water law, water chemistry, the water cycle, local water systems, aquatic wildlife and ecology. Students will have fun with hands on activities while learning about local and global water issues.

The Water Festival aims to provide a fun, educational experience for students, teacher and parents. To encourage participation, the Cities are covering the cost of the Water Festival and bus transportation. While planned for fifth grade classes, fourth grade classes may attend if the water festival is curriculum appropriate. Only one grade per school can attend.
