The Water Game

Students will discover ways to preserve, conserve, and share our waters while playing an interactive, giant board game. Students will gain an understanding of how vital it is to protect our limited freshwater resources from pollutants such as animal waste, fertilizers, oil, and soil erosion. Students will use addition and subtraction to track water consumption. The game can be played outdoors.
