We All Live on the Water

Do alligators live in sewers?
What happens to animal waste when it rains?
Where in the watershed do you live?
What's your water IQ?

Find out the answers to all of these questions, and more, in the We All Live on the Water newspaper.

We All Live on the Water is a Newspapers in Education (NIE) publication, designed to help teachers meet SOL requirements while teaching important concepts about care of the environment to elementary students. We All Live on the Water incorporates articles, puzzles, and interactive class activities to teach concepts such as the water cycle, pollution prevention, stormwater management, and the importance of keeping sanitary sewer systems unclogged. A Teacher's Guide includes suggested resources and additional education activities. The SOLs, which are met by each article in We All Live on the Water and by the additional activities, are listed on the SOL chart at the end of this guide for easy reference.
