Are you teaching your kids about going green, wetlands, ecology, soil quality, pollution, erosion, or the environment? This activity includes detailed directions for every aspect of a lesson that simulates a populated area near a wetland in detail and in a hands on and fun way. This activity has been done with kids from preschool age through high school.
Disclaimer: I have also heard versions of this activity verbally from various colleagues and have created my own version. All of the text is of my own creation, but the original ideas that inspired it were not my own.
