For Clovis and Fresno Teachers
Use the District’s free classroom materials to teach your students about stormwater – where it flows, how it becomes polluted, and how to prevent stormwater pollution is fundamental to understanding our local water resources. These info graphics, posters, presentations, and activity books help you meet the State of California’s Next Generation Science Standard (NGSS) for:
- Earth’s Systems (MS-ESS2-4 & MS-ESS3-1)
- Human Impact (MS-ESS3-3 & MS-ESS3-4)
- Engineering Design (MS-ETS1-1)
The District will deliver materials to schools in the Fresno/Clovis metropolitan area or they can be picked up at the District office. If you are outside of the Fresno/Clovis metropolitan area most of the materials are available to download.
