Reflection: Intervention and Extension Mapping the Watershed - Section 3: Paper Run Off Simulation


Another way you can assess learning is to ask them to answer the following questions:

Describe what happened at the highest and lowest point in the watershed.
Did the different pollutants mix together?

Students can do this on a half sheet of paper and turn it in. I would include the list of three things to help the environment too. I would like my students to realize they can help our planet be healthy and impact the Earth in a positive way.
