About Water Week

Water Week is a celebration of water. It takes place in the third week of March each year and coincides with World Water Day on March 22. Across the country, Canadians take part in water-themed events and activities.

Overview and outcomes

Water plays a big role in providing clean energy, in a really cool way. These specially created activities will help build understanding of the important role water plays in powering the province of B.C.

Our Water Week activities provide a link to the core competencies of the curriculum. The activities engage students in sharing information, working with others and presenting information. They challenge your students to consider their role in the world around them and how to make a difference.

    • Acquire, interpret and present information
