These guided notes are aligned with NCES 8.E.1.3 and cover the different indicators of a healthy water system such as:
Physical Indicators: Temperature, turbidity
Chemical Indicators: Dissolved Oxygen, pH, Nitrates + Phosphates, Salinity
Biological Indicators: Bioindicator species
Notes cover water stewardship including what the EPA is and how they protect our water systems as well as the Clean Water Act.
These notes allow you to print them to create a folded book, perfect for interactive notebooks!
The guided PDF PowerPoint slides have all the notes and colorful visuals to fill in the guided notes. I personally love to add them to a Nearpod and add some videos and questions to keep my students engaged. If you are interested in sharing the Nearpod with your students via Google Classroom or just checking out the one I created, you can use this link: https://share.nearpod.com/vsph/IJ1BqdaDrI. Feel free to email me with any other questions!
