Game of Drought
Martin and Sylvia's family is invited to a wedding in California. As they prepare, they learn that conserving water is important to the cousin who lives there. In fact, the two people getting married are both educators about water conservation. Momma has an idea: What if we played a game? A game where we try to use less water? Brother and sister are excited and motivated, and for the next week, they enjoy playing "The Game of Drought" — a game that is not only a challenge, but is lots of fun.
This story turns water conservation into a game with measurement and strategy.
