Mi Arroyo, Mi Tierra

Mi Arroyo, Mi Tierra Unit

Curriculum Scope and Sequence

Workshops will be held in fall 2023 and more information will be posted late summer.

Mi Arroyo, Mi Tierra was developed to support place-based outdoor education using local arroyos that are readily accessible to most schools. Each mini unit begins with a walk to observe different phenomena taking place in the arroyo. Through the lens of stormwater, students explore erosion, infiltration, and pollution while using hands-on activities that are aligned with 6th grade and middle school NM STEM Ready! Science Standards. Students will make connections between the history of the local arroyo system, how water moving through impacts the system, best management practices, and the role arroyos have played in local cultures over time.

Thank you to the City of Santa Fe for their support of this program.
