Grades 9-10

Enviroscape Watershed Model

This models helps students understand what a watershed is and how it drains. Students will place simulated pollutants on the land to see how we contribute to water pollution.

Stream Table

This is an exciting hands-on way to learn about stream morphology. The stream table is available for loan, teaching concepts of stream behavior. A teaching guide is included; the stream table can demonstrate streambank erosion, streambank protection, stream energy and slope change, among other concepts.
