TERRELL COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of South Georgia elementary students ventured out of the classroom to learn about one of Earth's most precious resource.

Fourth and fifth graders from Terrell, Lee, Dougherty and Webster counties participated in the fifth annual Water Festival. Students rotated through 10 stations where they learned about everything from farming and water to the mosquitoes in it.

Our own meteorologist Jay Polk was there.

"Children are always surprised when you hold up a bottle of water and say the water I'm about to drink is the same water the dinosaurs drank. We can't make water, it's just recycled," said Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful director, Judy Bowles.

"And we as human beings need to learn how to take care of that, conserve it and not pollute it." About one thousand students are expected to attend Dawson's water festival during the next three days.
