Clean Water Ducks

ages 3-6


Tub, water, plastic ducks, dirt, empty water bottles, oil

Activity Detail

Fill a clear plastic tub with water. The tub should hold at least 2 gallons of water, but a plastic pool could also be used. Place several plastic ducks in the water. Explain to your child that the tub or pool represents a lake, where the ducks live. Place several empty plastic water bottles in the tub with the ducks. Talk with your child about what happens when people throw their litter into the lake. The ducks no longer have a clean place to live. You can also add some dirt or oil to the water, and have your child experiment with removing the dirt and oil. They can try using a net, sponge, or cup. This activity is a wonderful way to discuss the importance of keeping our lakes clean for wildlife.

This is a great activity for opening up dialog on keeping or lakes clean but also just "living green" in general. Older kids (5-6 year olds) especially have an ability to grasp the concept of preserving our wildlife for instance, or recycling and this is great way to encourage interest and excitement about those things.

This to me is a one time activity. You will get your point across but I don't need to see doing this all of the time.
