The video can be on Ms. Smarty-Plants™ YouTube  page. If your group has scheduled a virtual visit with Ms. Smarty-Plants™, they should watch the video prior to her popping in to your class call.
  2. Assessment following the Ms. Smarty-Plants™ Water Saver video Students can take a fun, short quiz which will capture the level of information retained . We offer a lower grade fun quiz (K-2nd) and an upper grade fun quiz (3rd-6th).
  3. Staying positive & making a difference! We want to encourage each student to create their own Earth Hero moment, (see document “Which Earth Hero are You?”), so they can be shared with Ms. Smarty-Plants™ and the school’s water district.
