|This is a fantastic unit that begins in the
mountains and follows a watershed to the
ocean. Exciting activities are scattered
throughout. Whether it's piecing together a
giant river on the floor, or studying
bio-indicators, this unit has it all. This is an
especially meaningful unit if you have the
time to conduct a water quality assessment
on a local waterway described in Part II.
Teaching Duration 5-8 weeks. (2,200 Slides)
|The Rivers, Lakes, and Water Quality Unit covers science topics associated with
Watersheds, Rivers in the United States, Sections of a River, Parts of a River, Water
Quality, Chemical Properties of Rivers, Bio-Indicators of Water Quality, Flooding,
Wetlands, Flood Prevention, Levees, Dams and Ecosystem, Hydroelectric Power,
Salmon, Fish, Layering in a Lake, Nutrient Pollution. This unit includes an interactive
