Sequence of Events: The Watershed

Class members simulate a watershed with a painters drop cloth, placing objects underneath to create landscape variation, making "rain" with a watering can, and using red drink mix powder to track the path of precipitation. They observe what happens and depict the sequence of events on a chart (example included). Engaging and visual. Extend by researching the topography of your local watershed and building an accurate facsimile.

I am a very busy Head of Department and often don't have time to create worksheets and other resources for my classes. Lesson Planet has helped me find many useful and interesting activities to support my students' learning.
