What better way to learn about the watershed than to have your kids act it out themselves? This activity gets them moving and thinking as they simulate the Atlantic Ocean (could be adjusted geographically), estuaries, creeks, and rivers. Enhance the activity by misting them with water to represent a storm! Instead of just having them make water noises here, consider giving learners paper representing water. They pass it along, eventually ending in the ocean. Kids draw a watershed diagram and make predictions outside where water will end up once it rains.
In these word meanings in context worksheets, students read the selection about the world's longest rivers and then use context clues to learn the meanings of the words Nile River, source, mouth, Amazon River, Mississippi River, tributary, Ob River, and Yangtze River.

Students finish by matching the vocabulary words and their meanings to complete the crossword puzzle.
