Investigations can often be tailored to your schoolyard, grade and concept preferences.2-12
Where Does Our Water Come From?
Where does our water come from? How can we ensure a clean and accessible water supply while also protecting watershed ecosystems? Students will explore these questions and brainstorm solutions through a facilitated discussion and group research.

Slow the Flow in Urban WatershedsStudents explore the changes human development in our watershed has had on the water cycle locally through mapping and discussion. They work in groups to brainstorm solutions to reduce urban runoff, protect our groundwater and then explore existing examples of green infrastructure that are being utilized to help conserve water.  Great for introducing the Infographic Contest!6-12
