‘Keep Our Water Clean’ Classroom Suite

Water is a precious resource, limited by how much it rains and snows each year. As rains washes our neighborhoods clean, it also rinses street pollutants like motor oil and lawn chemicals down into the storm drains, which empty into ponding basins. This suite of classroom materials was created to meet the State of California’s Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), in close collaboration with the Fresno County Superintendent of Schools.
