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.
Measure the Speed of a Water Leak
In this activity (page 2 of PDF under GPS: Glaciers Activity), learners will measure the rate at which water streams out of a leaky cup.
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.
Water Quality and pH Levels in Aquatic Ecosystems
In this fun and in depth hands-on experiment, learners test various liquid samples (distilled water, lemon juice, vinegar, and baking soda mixed with water) to determine their pH levels and identify e
Shake and Break
In this activity, learners will model the mechanical weathering and erosion of rocks in a stream or river.
Learners take a field trip along a local body of water and conduct a visual survey to discover information about local land use and water quality.
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.
Great Steamboat RaceAdd to list Details
In this outdoor activity, learners race small boats, made of cork, balsa wood, popsicle sticks etc., to investigate the rate and direction of currents in a stream or creek.
