Watershed Decisions

Watershed Decisions

Introduce students to things that can impact a watershed, and some steps that could improve watersheds. This kit includes large, laminated maps, instruction cards, punch cups, and a lesson plan. Students will be instructed to use different colors of food coloring to simulate the polution at different parts of the watershed. They will then use that visual to discuss and make decisions for a plan moving forward, as if they were a part of the area's watershed committee.
