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.
