The following are lessons in water for youth. You may access the lesson through three options.

Option 1 is to download the free lesson and source any required materials independently (most are free or low-cost).

Option 2 is to order a lesson box which you can keep for 1 month before returning to APCFNC (postage-paid). Both these options require a teacher or adult to administer the lesson.

Option 3 is to request a virtual facilitator to help out.
