A beautiful blend of mathematics and earth/environmental science for a variety of learning levels and styles. This water budget graphing lab includes an array of concepts connected to the water cycle and how it relates to groundwater and soil behavior. The lab is centered around the water budget for Atlanta, Georgia which is similar to many lower and middle latitude climates of the United States. This water budget incorporates the water supply (precipitation), water need (evaporation and transpiration), water usage, water recharge, water surplus, and water deficit.
Very colorful and a lot of fun! Within the classroom, this activity was consistently very successful and acclaimed by students in grades 6th – 10th within multiple schools - public, private, and charter schools in a multiple states.
This work has also been shared at workshops, in-services, and conferences.
It is modified for different abilities and past performance levels allowing the teacher to make pedagogical decisions based on the specific learner.
