WANTED: “High-Tech Pen Pals”

Fifth grade classes near Albuquerque, New Mexico, are looking for partners to exchange information about watersheds, rivers, stormwater, and other water resources topics!

RiverXchange is a FREE year-long program focused on communication between classes about water resources issues, through online partnerships. Our hands-on lessons can be used for reference, to enhance your existing curriculum, or as a complete program that explores rivers, watersheds, stormwater, municipal water supplies, ecology, and conservation.

Students communicate 4 times throughout the school year on a private website. Through writing and creative sharing about rivers, we integrate science with language arts, social studies, and 21st-Century learning skills, all correlated to Common Core Language Arts Standards!

Check out our public website, www.RiverXchange.com, for more information and to access the registration form. I’d love to hear from you if you have any questions about the program.
