Rollin' on the River: The McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System

Middle schoolers take a close look at the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation system. They study how the Army Corps of Engineers built and monitor the system. Learners discover how a lock and a dam work, and study three benefits of having a dam built on a river: navigation, flood control, and recreation. An worthwhile lesson plan even for people who don't live in Arkansas.
