Searchable Resource Library

By: Jessica Wheeler, The Groundwater Foundation 

Are you looking for a fun, hands-on educational activity about groundwater? Check out The Groundwater Foundation’s new searchable resource library featuring nearly 70 easy to use activity instructions, curriculum guides, how-to videos, crosswords, word searches, coloring sheets, and more! These resources and activities are perfect for use in formal classrooms, extracurricular programs, community outreach events, and more! Search by:

  • Age
  • Duration
  • Key topic (i.e. - water cycle, irrigation, contamination/pollution prevention, etc.)
  • Category (i.e. - arts and crafts, outdoor, messy, etc.)

You can also search for activities and resources by name, such as “Aquifer in a Cup.” Results display an image of the activity, the activity name, a description and link to how-to videos (if available), and a link to additional details and to download the instructions.

Check out this tool and let us know what you think by completing a brief survey!

Support for the development and launch of this online resource library was provided by a Public Information and Education Mini-Grant from the Nebraska Environmental Trust, administered by the Nebraska Academy of Sciences.
