Water In Our Desert Community is an instructional resource for grades 6 through 9 that provides students and teachers with information about central Arizona's water supply, water demand and the importance of wise water management in the Desert Southwest. These materials were developed with the goal of strengthening both teachers and students awareness of the social, economic and environmental impact water management has on all water users in Arizona. While intended to supplement existing curricula, the sixteen activities include concepts, attitudes and skills emphasized in the Arizona Environmental Education Framework and many of the Arizona Essential Skills documents.
