What’s Up with Water? Tuesday: Watershed Pollution
Our wonderful water experts began their exploration of watersheds and the effect of pollution on the ocean and marine life. Students worked in pairs to simulate pollution within water systems using food color. They were asked to predict the pollutant’s route and hypothesize how far it would travel: “It’s going to flow in the direction of the largest body of water,” one student hypothesized.
Not only were the students able to build an accurate model of a watershed, but they also applied their new knowledge to form new opinions and inquiries about the wide world of water around them!
