The Project WET Foundation and the City of Bozeman have teamed up to develop and implement a Bozeman-based water education curriculum free of charge to local teachers. The Water Conservation and Storm Water Management Educator Guide contains five lessons offering some of the basics of water literacy—using local waterways and landmarks—while also delving into more advanced topics. All of the activities incorporate Project WET’s interactive and fun education methods to maximize student learning. The curriculum is designed for Bozeman-area fifth and sixth grade teachers, with the goal of embedding it into the core curriculum for fifth grade.

Now in its third pilot year, the Water Conservation and Storm Water Management Educator Guide has helped students demonstrate significantly better understanding of watersheds, storm water, water conservation and how individual actions can impact water.

This website contains resources for teachers using the curriculum including the Water Conservation and Storm Water Management Educator Guide, downloadable student copy pages from the guide to print and hand out, links to resources teachers can use in the classroom (e.g., maps) and suggestions for additional Project WET resources to accompany the curriculum.

Please contact Project WET at wetusa@projectwet.org for questions or training on this program.
