How Watersheds Work

This How Watersheds Work lesson plan also includes:

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.
