Lesson Plan

Water in the Biosphere

This Water in the Biosphere lesson plan also includes:

Environmental explorers examine the campus and take note of living organisms. Introduce them to the biosphere and the questions of the day: How much water can be found in the biosphere? A slide show helps you along, and even contains a water cycle animation. Explorers visit the outdoors again and use a dichotomous key to identify land cover plants and relate them to the water that is available.
