RiverXchange Recruits Partners


This looks like a great opportunity for 4th-6th grade students and teachers! Are you interested in  a "high-tech pen pal" program about issues around water? Fifth grade classes near Albuquerque, New Mexico, are looking for partners to exchange information about rivers and their watersheds!

RiverXchange is a year-long program with hands-on lessons that can be used for reference, to enhance your existing curriculum, or as a complete program that explores rivers, watersheds, storm water, municipal water supplies, ecology, and conservation.

Students communicate four times throughout the school year on a private website. RiverXchange provides training and support. Through creative sharing, the program integrates science with language arts, social studies, and 21st-Century learning skills, all correlated to Common Core Language Arts Standards!

Check out the public website, RiverXchange.com for more information and to register. This sounds like a great opportunity to take water resource education to the next level.
