“Watershed Maps” 

Watershed Maps is a hands-on activity that provides students with a clear visual that demonstrates and defines the concepts of watersheds, and point and non-point source pollution. Using just a piece of paper, markers, and a touch of water, students will follow along and create their own working model of a watershed. 

You can schedule a virtual presentation from our team, or download our Watershed Maps activity PowerPoint with audio, by clicking the links below:
