Teacher Resources

The Boise WaterShed’s primary goal is to educate the public about water and watershed stewardship. Whether you’re a teacher looking for field trip options or an individual with a passion for lifelong learning, the Boise WaterShed has something to offer you. We hope you find these resources valuable to expanding the lessons that the Boise WaterShed offers.

The Library Resource Center is filled with books, videos, curriculum books, and kits that teachers can reserve for their use. In addition, educational pamphlets are available free of charge.

Check out our lessons and tours for fun, interactive classes for grades Pre-K to 12. We have student worksheets available for the Exhibit Hall tour, Wastewater Treatment Plant tour, and a coloring book that explores the art and messages in and around the center. 

Pre and Post-Visit Activities

Professional Development

  • Teacher workshops are offered year-round in partnership with Project WET and in the summer during the annual Treasure Valley iSTEM Institute.

If you are interested in information on the Web, we have compiled a list of websites we think might be of interest to you.
