Step 4: Wrap it Up

A Time for Reflection and Evaluation

Time required: 15 minutes to 1 hours

• Have the participants fill in the Report Card that is included with each Field Guide. Please collect these and send them in to Partners FOR the Saskatchewan River Basin. Alternatively, an online reporting form can be submitted through our website, by logging onto www.saskriverbasin.ca and following the links under Water Watchdog. We do not require specific information such as last names, addresses or phone numbers of the children. Any received will not be published or distributed.

Remember data is most powerful when it is shared! We will use our website to maintain an updated summary of locations at which monitoring took place and general findings.

• Form a Sharing Circle (Leader’s Set Up, page 14) to give participants time to reflect upon their field trip experience.

 

• If your group still has energy, play another round of Pike and Walleye (Leader’s Set Up, page 12) and see if their knowledge level has increased!

 

• Please complete and send in the Leaders Evaluation Form

(also available online)

Step 5: Further Action?

Beyond the Field Trip

Time required: Variable

• If your group still has energy, play another round of Pike and Walleye (Leader’s Set Up, page 12) and see if their knowledge level has increased!

• Discuss water conservation in the home, school or camp. What measures can be taken to conserve water?

Look at the Field Guide, p. 24 and decide on an action plan. Use Consensus Decision-Making .(Leader's Set Up page 6) to determine responsibilities.

Thank you for participating in the Water Watchdog Program! Please ensure that you complete and submit the Leader's Evaluation. The information you send us will assist us in evaluating the success of the program, identifying where monitoring took place and keeping track of the number of children participating. This information is critical when we report to our project funders. We are interested in seeing what conclusions children are drawing from their data, and what impact their participation had on their attitudes and behavior in terms of water stewardship and water conservation. Any comments you can provide on your Leader's Evaluation form would be very helpful. Write to us, give us a call [Toll free: (800) 567-8007] or reach us online.
