Remington students study global water crisis, raise money to help

Fourth graders at Remington Traditional learned about the global water crisis and raised $500 for during a project based learning assignment. Students and guests attended a water fair on Dec. 2 to hear the fourth graders’ presentations and to purchase water bottle stickers that the students created.

“The students wrote essays about the different countries after they did research using nonfiction books and’s website,” teacher Julie Linck said. “Then we came together as a class to talk about how we can help.”

The students voted on making something to sell in order to raise money and collaborated with district technology specialist Stephanie McCreary after she introduced the Canva app to classroom teachers Linck and Alyssa Lipson. 

“Each student was able to make their own creation and we sold the water bottle stickers for $1 each during the fair,” Linck said. 

Fourth grader Jayden Machuki researched Kenya because he was able to visit the country when he was six years old.

“My parents are from Kenya and I saw Kenya’s water crisis first-hand,” he said. “With my research, I learned that six million people in Kenya don’t have access to clean water and 22 million people lack access to clean sanitation.”

Students Zoomed with a representative from on Dec. 7 and shared their presentations and learned more about the organization.
