Rivers are an important natural resource in Texas. They're not only essential natural habitats for many species of plants and animals, but they also provide a significant portion of the state with water and irrigation for agriculture. Learn about what makes the Rio Grande so special by watching our video, available in both English and Spanish. We also have a bilingual handout available for download so that students of both languages can follow along and complete an engaging activity after the video.
