On a rainy May afternoon, over 300 San Pedro Elementary School students enjoyed a lively and humorous musical assembly all about water. The bilingual performance was presented by ZunZun—an award-winning performing arts group specializing in environmental education—and sponsored by Marin Municipal Water District.
The performance included drums, flutes, rainsticks and a variety of other folkloric instruments from around the world imitating the sounds of water. The audience joined in for a number of interactive songs and dances, including the Sprinkler Dance, the Washing Machine Dance, and the crowd-favorite Low-Flow Limbo. The students learned all about where our water comes from, where runoff goes, and how they can help conserve water.
The performance was the 20th and final of this school year, but MMWD will be sponsoring the assemblies again next year as part of our free water education programs for schools in our service area. To learn more about the assemblies and MMWD’s other education programs including watershed field trips and classroom presentations, teachers can call 945-1458.
