Do you know exactly where the water goes when it rains in Hampton Roads? Or the name of the watershed in which you reside? Green Learning is a free educational guide designed to teach the region’s sixth grade students these important concepts and about how their actions affect the environment in positive and negative ways.
Written according to Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) guidelines by a team of experts who work in the region’s public works and public utilities departments, Green Learning connects students to their environment by combining educational information with colorful maps, interesting articles, puzzles, and interactive class activities to teach concepts such as watershed education, pollution prevention, stormwater management, water conservation, resource management, and prevention of sanitary sewer overflows.
