Help me give my students all-day access to fresh, cold, and environmentally friendly water.
My students are third- through fifth-grade students in a culturally and economically diverse community. All of my students have autism spectrum disorders that require a specialized learning environment and materials. Within my classroom, I need to take into account noise levels, light filtering, smells, access to a break space, access to a variety of tactile activities, just to name a few. I also need to provide high-interest materials to keep the students engaged in learning. With limited classroom budgets, it is often difficult for the special education teacher to access these materials.
My students have special needs that make temperature regulation difficult, and it is hot in California. We currently go through cases of bottled water at school. This is not the lesson I want to teach the future adults of our world. We need to reduce or eliminate single-use plastic. Our school is very old, and the tap water is not very tasty and definitely not cold.
Our classroom would love an environmentally friendly way to provide cold, fresh water to my students at any time of the school day.
Students who are cool and hydrated have an easier time learning.
