In this activity (on pages 36-39), learners make a model of a watershed out of paper, then run water down the mountain to simulate how rainfall and pollution affect watersheds.
Water Body Salinities IAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners investigate the different salinity levels of oceans, rivers and estuaries.
Water Body Salinities IIAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners discuss the different salinities of oceans, rivers and estuaries.
Sandy SamplesAdd to list Details
In this collecting/comparing activity, learners work with samples of sand from different places like a lakefront, river, or ocean beach.
A Cubic Foot Per Second
In this activity, learners measure and calculate the amount of cubic feet various containers contain. Next, learners investigate cubic feet per second (cps), by carrying jugs in one second.
Amazon Water Cycle Roleplay
In this creative roleplay activity, learners will explore the various processes of the water cycle using movement, sound, and props to aid in comprehension.
Shake and BreakAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners will model the mechanical weathering and erosion of rocks in a stream or river.
The Best Dam Simulation EverAdd to list Details
This online simulation game explores the different consequences of water levels on the Columbia River in the Pacific Northwest.
In this design-based lesson, learners study flood dynamics as they modify a riverbed with blockages or levees to simulate real-world scenarios.
Evolution in Action: Isolation and Speciation in the Lower Congo River
In this guided discussion activity, learners watch a video about Central Africa's Lower Congo River, one of the most biologically diverse rivers in the world.
The Incredible Journey
In this weather activity (page 4 of the PDF), learners will explore the water cycle through an interactive game.
In this activity, learners use aluminum trays and wooden blocks to form stream tables to investigate river formations in two different landscape scenarios.
What Lives HereAdd to list Details
In this outdoor activity/field trip, learners explore an aquatic site such as a pond, lake, stream, river or seashore to find and investigate plants and animals that live in water.
In this outdoor water activity, learners explore how to change the direction of water flow. Learners make puddles in dirt or use existing puddles and sticks to make water flow.
Make a LakeAdd to list Details
Where rainwater goes after the rain stops? And why there are rivers and lakes in some parts of the land but not in others?
In this activity, learners act as water molecules and travel through parts of the water cycle to discover that it is more complex than just water moving from the ground to the atmosphere.
The World's WaterAdd to list Details
Water on Earth is in lakes, the ocean, rivers, underground, and frozen glaciers.
Crumple a WatershedAdd to list Details
Learners gain an intuitive knowledge of the physical aspects of watersheds by creating their own watershed models.
Without An Ark: The Effects of Storms and Floods
April showers bring May flowers, but what do coastal storms bring?
