Watersheds are those land areas that catch rain or snow and drain to specific marshes, streams, rivers, lakes, or to ground water. This site allows users to locate their watershed by city, county, state, or region. Links provide information about stream flow, water use, conservation efforts, demographics, forest riparian habitats, science in your watershed, water discharges, and assessment of watershed ...

This activity prepares the student to launch an investigation of the relationship between precipitation and Streamflow for a local watershed. It can enrich a study of the water cycle. Following the step-by-step instruction in this case study, students will locate, download, format, and finally graph one year of Web-based data for these two variables. Included is a graph that highlights the details ... Full description.

This demonstration is designed to show how the inputs and outputs of energy or mass in a system balance. Students create a reservoir model using a hose, a bucket, a tub with a drain and overflow triangle, a ruler, and water, to understand the inputs and outputs of a local watershed or reservoir. A worksheet accompanies the activity. The resource is supported by teacher background information, assessments, ... Full description.

In this activity, students use mathematics to understand tides and gravitation and how gravity works across astronomical distances, using an apparatus made from a slinky, meter stick, and a hook. A description of the mathematical relationships seen in the demonstration is included. The resource is from PUMAS - Practical Uses of Math and Science - a collection of brief examples created by scientists ... Full description.

Comparing the amounts of land and water on Earth's surface leads students to discover why it is called the water planet. Students examine photos of Earth taken from space, analyze the results of a globe toss game and compare ocean sizes using pieces of clay to gain a perspective on the amount of surface area that is covered by water. The URL opens to the investigation directory, with links to teacher ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
In this investigation, students are introduced to types of water bodies. Seven types are defined and each is then located on NASA satellite images and maps. Students also use maps to identify and compare bodies of water in their state with those of other states, noting also how water availability in different regions impacts people, animals and plants. The consequences of changes in those bodies of ... Full description.

This article describes the the effects of salt and heat on water and its movements. The accompanying game requires the manipulation of those two variables to create water currents leading to a treasure chest. A second article briefly describes six relevant NASA satellite missions. The article is targeted to children ages 10-12. Full description.

Comment on this resource
The Antarctic ice sheet changes in size over the course of a year. When it is summer in the southern hemisphere, the ice sheet decreases in size. As the ice sheet melts, it releases fresh water into the ocean. In the southern winter (our summer), the ice refreezes, drawing fresh water out of the surrounding ocean, leaving the salt behind. These seasonal changes in the ice sheet are examined in this ... Full description.
