Arizona Water Story

Designed for students in grades 4-6, this program includes a six-lesson teacher’s guide and a three-part video. It is correlated to the ELA Common Core education standards, also called Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards.  This program may be particularly useful as a supplement to the study of Arizona as a state, or as a supplement to a physical science unit on natural resources.
