Welcome to Rivers of Life
Rivers of Life is a full model for contextual learning; a flood of projects, adventures, and resources to help K-12 teachers and students learn about and from their watershed.
Rivers inspire us, transport us, feed and nourish us, and amuse us. Much of human history, culture, and inspiration is tied to water. They are places of relaxation, exhilaration, occupation, culture, and history. With Rivers of Life, you'll use rivers and watersheds as a context for learning about the environment, and our relationship to Earth. Studying your local watershed will help you make global connections.
Rivers of Life offers two rich, hands-on project-based learning programs:
As you explore our site, you'll also find an extensive collection of resources for use in your classroom study of rivers. Join Rivers of Life as we study, and celebrate, the artistic, historical and ecological importance of the world's rivers.
