Product Description

This lesson is designed to have students experience the concept of your local watershed. We all live in a watershed and this digital lab ask students to look at their surrounding with a critical eye. Using a camera, ipad or phone, students collect images of land use around your school building as it relates to water. After collecting information, student research the concept of a watershed using QR codes and EPA watershed mapping tool. To complete the lesson, I ask students to construct a info graphic illustrating what they have learned about watershed using original images they have collected

Note: This is part of my Ecology Lab Bundle for Middle School
