A River Runs Through It

On Wednesday our first and second graders had a special visitor, Mike Kerlin. Mike, an expert on water scarcity (and parent to a kindergartener at TPS), created an imaginary river in one of our classrooms and showed students how population growth can lead to water scarcity.

Students came up with ideas for ways for families, farmers, and factories to save water, all of which would help “protect the forest and fish, which need water!”  

Thank you, Mike, for sharing your expertise with the students!
