This curriculum guide capstone sought to answer the question of, how can young children reduce their water footprint? In order to achieve this, it was determined that the form of an activity packet focused on water conservation would allow for young children to be introduced to, and habitually practice, water conservation methods. The author researched child development theories that were most effective in educating the widest possible audience of children while dually causing the instilling of environmental values; the science of habits was also examined. Additionally, the author examined preexisting activity packets and curriculums regarding the environment that had been found proven successful. All of these areas served as the foundation for which the individualized activity packet was then built upon; in turn, an activity packet on water conservation was created that successfully allowed for young children to reduce their water footprint.
