Instructional Ideas

  • Rather than delivering the background information in lecture format, have groups research the different pollutants and prepare a presentation that shows how these sources affect the watershed
Classroom Considerations

  • For classrooms outside the San Francisco Bay area, the lesson would need to be adapted to the local watershed
Pros

  • Discussion questions and a list of extension activities are provided
Cons

  • Most of the background information is presented in lecture format
