The Environmental Education and Outreach Mobile Classroom is a multi-media, water quality unit study that utilizes audience participation, music, and theater to engage students in understanding personal responsibility in water quality stewardship.
This sixty-minute, interactive program aligns with the Mississippi Curriculum Science Framework for grades 3-6 and travels to schools and educational and public events located in priority watershed areas state-wide.




The Description

The program begins with an interactive, thirty-minute water quality unit study entitled, "All The Water in The World" in which students engage with activities that demonstrate the properties of water, the hydrologic cycle, and the priority watershed in their area. Students identify how common pollutants impact waterways and learn new habits for litter disposal that will help to protect the watershed. A musical, theatrical presentation follows "All the Water in the World" as a visual portrayal of how pollution impacts a community's environment when conservation is not practiced. When progress comes to River Town, Bobby Bass' friends learn water quality stewardship, which includes Best Management Practices, that restore health to the river.
