Congratulations to Curriculum Developer and Teacher Leader Chris Pavlovich!
Chris developed a place-based watershed unit, "Watershed Warriors" that incorporates all standards for 5th grade.

Chris has also shared this curriculum with all Montana Teachers on the Teacher Learning Hub in the course she wrote, "Watershed Education 3-5: Place-based Education"
