Neighborhood Reconnaissance

Learners examine the different non-point source pollutants in the local lake or water source by reading handouts and discuss the most serious concerns. They conduct a neighborhood reconnaissance as a field study and look for signs of the pollutants and record their data. After their field study, the students generate a list of potential projects the class can do to help educate the public about protecting and improving the water quality in their watershed.

I have been told by seasoned educators not to "re-invent the wheel" when coming up with ideas for lessons. So true!! Lesson Planet has a wealth of sources and ideas from some of the greatest teaching minds that are out there...what a blessing to have a resource such as Lesson Planet, to turn to. I am even planning to contribute a lesson or two myself. My daughter is in a teacher education program and I have introduced her to the "Planet". We're spreading the news!
