Does your class know that all water that falls from a watershed ends up in the same large waterway? If they don't, they will after they complete this activity. They make a clay model of a landscape that looks similar to a topographical map with watersheds included. They pour water into their sheds and observe how it converges into a single larger body of water. They write what they observe on a data collection sheet, create their own definition of a watershed, and anser several prompts to show what they know.
