Dams 101 for Kids

Hey Kids!

My name is Bucky Beaver, and I want to tell you all about my favorite subject, DAMS! Although the dams I build are for my protection and are small, I know a lot about human dams!

Dams help control water, our most important resource. Water is important because plants, animals and humans need to drink it to stay alive. We also use it to cook, clean and bathe.

We also use water to have fun. What fun would a swimming pool be without water?

It is important that we have just the right amount of water though. Having too much water will cause a flood. Having too little will cause a drought. We need a way to have just the right amount.

Building a dam can help control the flow of water and the amount of water that we have available!
