This challenge is intended as a culminating experience after students have studied the topic of watersheds; what they are and how to map them.
In teams organized with the help of your teacher, produce a travel guide for a drop of water entering our local watershed from the atmosphere. You may choose any location in our watershed as the point of impact for the water droplet.
Directions: Organize teams, provide resources, and hand out student directions (see attachment #1) along with the Product Quality Checklist. Allow 5 class days for completion of the challenge.
