Product Description
This hands-on activity is part of my environmental education unit to help teach students about the importance of watersheds. Students will learn what one is, create it and be able to describe how it is important to humans. Students will also manipulate and explain how pollutants can affect our drinking water.

This lesson was designed and used with my grade 7 small group and inclusion science students. After learning of the Gulf Oil spill, many of my students had questions about what would happen to the land and water in the surrounding areas. Their questions inspired me to create a unit based on our planet, Earth.

An answer key is included as well as a teacher information sheet.

• This was an excellent resource for our global studies project.
• These were great worksheets to use with the making of a watershed. I loved the additional reading and layout that included hypothesis etc.
