|A River Runs Through It|
This two-month project requires a nearby stream or river to use for testing. Students use river monitoring equipment to conduct water tests, fish observation, insect identification and to collect data related to physical properties of the stream or river. They then design a project based on one of four goals, and present their results to the class. This site provides research links, rubrics, lessons, worksheets and logs, and information for teachers. This project was designed by K-12 teachers to demonstrate engaged learning and effective use of technology. It is structured in such a way that students are responsible for their own learning, and is collaborative, student-driven, and technology dependent.
