This week's theme is water. Water is a very important topic here in the Sonoran Desert. This week, discover the wonder of monsoon season, and the desert critters who come out to celebrate rain. Then learn how to measure and conserve water (with water-saving tips you can use at home), and explore ways to have fun with water in the science experiments and activities below. 
It’s monsoon season in the Sonoran Desert, and a great time to go in search of frogs and tadpoles in puddles, near washes, and throughout the desert. Track your discoveries with this nature journal. To learn more about frogs, toads, and amphibians, watch How a Frog Becomes a Frog, and learn about survival, adaptation, and fun facts in Amphibians.
In this episode of Cyberchase, Pearl and the cybersquad observe a leaky faucet and see how a large amount of water can be wasted over a short time.
In this activity, learn water-saving tips, then create a plan to conserve water by making small changes at home. This plan is available in English and Spanish.
With this simple project, create "glowing water" by adding the contents of a non-toxic highlighter to water. This project is a great way to learn about bioluminescence in nature.
Explore a mangrove swamp. Earn points in this photo safari game by taking pictures of specific plants and animals.
Is it possible to transport water from one cup to another using only string? Find out in this experiment from Zoom!
