Due by the end of the nigh Thursday, August 6th.
Participating schools are expected to test their monitoring site once a month during the school year – with the assistance of the Program Facilitator of course! But, students experience the full benefits of the program when they actually use the data they have collected to become informed active participants of their community. How can you incorporate water quality testing and the Well Watch Database into your classroom to help students understand their role in the Well Watch Program? Develop an outline, flowchart or draft a lesson to start brainstorming some ideas and submit it to Ivonne. Please be sure to cover at least one of the testing components listed below and include an activity for students to explore the testing component or overarching concept you selected. You may come up with a new activity, incorporate one of the activities discussed in the presentation or modify a lesson from online to fit the Well Watch Program.
We are not requiring teachers to implement this in the classroom due to the current circumstances. The goal of this assignment is for you to brainstorm some ways for incorporating water quality testing in your classroom so students can experience the full benefits of the program. The Well Watch program should support your curriculum and not be something separate that causes more work. Based on your submission, we will try to develop some resources that we will upload to the teacher resources page.
We are being flexible with the format of the assignment. Every person brainstorms differently so we don’t want to restrict anyone’s way of thinking and planning. If you have any questions, please contact Ivonne Morales.
Testing Components (must cover at least one of the following):
- Dissolved Oxygen
- Water Levels
- Water Temperatures
- Outside Temperatures
