Showdown at Dry Gulch

Water Conservation

Our story opens in Dodge Ball City, where Sheriff Carrie Gooper is faced with a problem. The notorious Ron of the Cons has challenged Carrie to a showdown at high noon! But that’s not all – it seems there is also a water shortage. Could they be linked?

Carrie seeks help from her friends Reginald the Cow and Blabby Daze to uncover the cause of the water shortage and to help back her up at the showdown. They inform her about the importance of drinking fresh drinking water and how to protect it. However, her friends are afraid of Ron of the Cons so Carrie takes it upon herself to meet Ron alone.

Has Carrie learned enough about water conservation to solve the water shortage? And what will happen during her showdown with Ron of the Cons?

Students and teachers will also have access to an e-learning package that includes games, quizzes and lesson plans for the classroom to reinforce concepts from the show.
