Description

A lesson plan I put together for a course assignment.

“ Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink.” Part 2: Save The River!

Collaborative group activity Given a computer with Internet access, a word processor, and the appropriate webquest documents, collaborative groups of 7 th grade Earth Sciences students will research data on the quality of the water in the local river and will summarize their findings in written format with at least 90% accuracy based on the rubric.

Our school will be working in collaboration with the Huron River Watershed Foundation to address the problem of waste awareness in the community around our school. Many of the older storm drains are not marked as the example is here. We’re going to change that by spraypainting a similar message where it is needed! Stencil Project
