Our Lessons

The Water Ambassador School Program is targeted at ages 6 to 11 in classrooms with free zazen Alkaline Water systems.  The zazen system emulates Mother Nature’s water cycle and is used to educate the children on the drinking water cycle and the positive impact that water can have on the way they feel, behave and perform.

The base lessons created and available for download have been written to deliver directly to grades 3 – 5.

We advise teachers and lesson educators to modify and simplify the messages as needed for older and younger children e.g.:

  • With younger children in prep and grades 1 & 2 we advise the use of our Story Book, explaining to the children the fun-damentals of lesson 1.
  • With older children depending on the water cycle lessons already taught, the content of the lessons can be used to reinforce and support the current water education curriculum and extend some of the concepts*.

*There are a number of optional lessons and activities available – and can be used at the discretion of the teacher and school.

Lesson Objectives

The objectives of the lessons are to:

  1. Teach children about water as a key nutrient for good health and wellbeing.
  2. Use fun experiments to show not all water is the same & how this impacts them.
