This engaging, informative educators' guide provides detailed background information about the Colorado Watershed. Its reference section contains 25 science-based, multidisciplinary, hands-on activities that teach about hydrology, geography, geology, ecology, tribes, history, cultures, economics, management issues and resource stewardship. In addition to being internationally relevant, all activities are classroom-tested by educators from the U.S., Mexico and several tribes. Complementing a curriculum that is correlated to national science standards (U.S. and Mexican) and other disciplines, it includes easy-to-use cross-reference charts, an in-depth glossary, index and detailed watershed maps.

BONUS item! Includes a colorful, 26” by 38” wall map of the Colorado River Watershed showing tributaries, water management infrastructure (dams, diversions, canals, pipelines and reservoirs), cities, reservations and national parks. Water allocation and population information and color photos included.
