the Watershed Game - Teacher

The Watershed Game helps students understand connections between land use, clean water and their community. Working in teams, students apply practices, plans, and policies to decrease water pollution while juggling financial resources. Successful teams reduce water pollution without going broke.

Classroom Version: Available at trainings, in a boxed set for purchase ($45) and in free downloadable parts (see below).
