Dewie the Dragon and the Kingdom of Wasteful teaches preschoolers the meaning of water conservation and how wasting water affects the environment around us. King Wasteful uses so much water that his water supply dries up so he has no choice but to use water from the forest. Dewie the Dragon watches as her friends, Ollie the Otter, Freddie the Fish, Savannah the Sparrow, and Frank the Frog, are forced to leave because there is less and less water available. However, with the help of Zoie the forest fairy, King Wasteful discovers the mistake he has made and learns how to conserve water which results in a restoration of the water supply. Dewie’s friends return to the forest and they all live happily ever after.

The curriculum packet includes a journal activity and the content can be used as part of a grade-level presentation. In addition, each student will have the opportunity to sign-up to take a plush Dewie the Dragon character home along with a parent letter explaining the lesson so students can teach their families and friends what they learned about conserving water. At the conclusion of the lesson plan, the journal entries can be mailed back to EMWD, using the postage paid envelope, where they will be bound together as a story for each of the students to keep as a water-saving reminder and memory of their own personal adventures with their forest friend, Dewie the Dragon.
