Rating
0.0 stars

In this simulation activity, students play the roles of community members wrestling with the problem of cleaning up a polluted pond on their common property. They quickly discover that because of their different values and interests, the important question is not whether to clean up the pond, but how much clean-up they are willing to pay for.

Build your own watershed
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

This experiment illustrates the basic properties of a watershed: how water flows from higher elevations to lower elevations, and how watersheds are interconnected. The students will understand how the placement of buildings, roads, and parking lots can be important to watershed runoff, and how careless use and disposal of harmful contaminants can have a serious effect on downstream watershed denizens.

Chemistry in an Estuary: Student Materials
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

These supplemental materials are meant to be used in conjunction with the activity "Chemistry in an Estuary." In this activity, students investigate water quality parameters to study the nature of, and the cyclical changes inherent in, the chemistry of estuarine water. Students study key water quality factors at several stations in a single reserve over time: current, daily, and yearly time scales. Students also compare water quality values over a yearly time scale in three different estuaries within NOAA' s National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERR): South Slough NERR, Oregon; Delaware NERR; and Old Woman Creek NERR, Ohio. Then students take water quality measurements at a site near them and compare their data to the water in the three geographically diverse NERR estuarine environments.

China's Disappearing Wetlands
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

Students will learn what wetlands are, where they are found, and their value to humans, animals, and the environment. As industrialization spreads and climate change intensifies, China's wetland resources continue to shrink and students will analyze the effects of industrialization on China's environment.

Estuary and the Watershed: Student Materials
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

These supplemental materials are meant to be used in conjunction with the activity "Estuary and the Watershed." In this activity, students investigate a large watershed, look for sources of pollution in the watershed, and study the impacts of a rain storm on a watershed and estuary, without going on field trip. Students begin by examining the San Francisco Estuary using Google Maps (Part 1), identifying possible sources of pollution and contamination along the major rivers that feed into the estuary (Part 2). Students also examine graphs of water quality data from the estuary and identify changes that occur due to a storm event (Part 3).

Exploring Characteristics of Wetlands
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

In this lesson, students will take on the role of a member of an environmental club and will search the database to find a wetland that they would be interested in helping to protect. Using the database search capabilities, they will first select various wetland characteristics and generate a report on the sites that meet their search criteria. Next, they will access an interactive map to view the locations and nearby features of the identified wetland sites. They will then narrow the choices down to a single wetland that they would like to protect and gather further information about it. Finally, as a member of the club, they will prepare a brief report to persuade others of the value of protecting their chosen site.
