This activity is designed to demonstrate to students what an average storm drain collects during a rainfall event and how the water from storm drains can impact the water quality and aquatic environments of local streams, rivers, and bays. Students will discover how the pollutant damages the environment, that the people who are responsible for the pollutant do not want to damage the environment, and ... Full description.

This series of seven activities allows students to demonstrate knowledge about what ground water is, explain how it moves through the soil and how it interacts with surface water, and learn how it is extracted for use as drinking water. Students will discover that when water enters the saturated zone, it becomes part of the ground water, that the top of this saturated zone is called the water table, ... Full description.

In this activity, students respond to a questionnaire, score points for each question, and use their final score to calculate their ecological footprint (how much land is required to support their lifestyle). From this they can look up how many Earths would be required should every one on Earth share the same lifestyle, thus highlighting the inequality of wealth and quality-of-life distribution across ...

This activity explores how common usage of a limited, potentially renewable resource invariably leads to its exploitation. In this simulation, students imagine that they are fishermen sharing access to a common fishing pond. Two different stages of the simulation are performed. In this, the first, students are not allowed to communicate, and each fisher has no knowledge of how many fish have been ... Full description.
