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.
Positive Planning Adds UpAdd to list Details
In this drawing/mapping activity, learners design plots of land while incorporating positive strategies for improving water quality.
Pollution in Our Watershed
By building a simple watershed with paper and markers and then using a spray bottle to simulate precipitation, learners will understand how pollution accumulates in our water sources, especially from
How Did That Get There?: Water PollutionAdd to list Details
As a group, learners consider sources of water pollution to understand where pollution starts and where it ends up.
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.
The Watershed Connection
In this activity, learners interact with a 3-D model of a watershed to better understand the interconnectedness of terrestrial and aquatic environments.
Exploring Earth: Paper Mountains
In this activity, learners explore in what ways the shape of the land and the pull of gravity influence how water moves over Earth.
Crumple a Watershed
Learners gain an intuitive knowledge of the physical aspects of watersheds by creating their own watershed models.
The Dead Zone: A Marine Horror Story
In this environmental science and data analysis activity, learners work in groups to track a Dead Zone (decreased dissolved oxygen content of a body of water) using water quality data from the Nutrien
