This watershed pollution activity is a great supplement to the popular EnviroScape® Watershed/NPS, Wetlands and Coastal models. And just like the models, this science Kit has been correlated to national science standards and is a great hands-on way to have fun while exploring the environment and learning about water pollution.
Enjoy a fun and educational activity where you can create and paint your own 3-D Model of a Watershed, including buildings, vegetation and bridges.
Instructional activities highlight how water pollution occurs and how to prevent it — such as adding cocoa for soil, drink mixes for chemicals, and making it rain. You can even make manure for use as a pollutant on the model – and experiment with techniques (best management practices) for preventing water pollution.
Perfect science craft activity for home-school groups, science clubs, camps, after-school programs and classrooms.
The 3-D watersheds can even be sent home with the students so they can share environmental awareness with their family and community!
Each EnviroScape®'s Make Your Own Watershed Kit includes: 1 landscape map; 5 buildings; 1 paint sets 3 paint brushes; 3 green felt strips (vegetation); Bridge template instructions to copy and cutout from cardboard or paper and complete instructions in English & Spanish.
Optional Plaster Creation: Some like to fill the map and building pieces with plaster and then paint the dried plaster pieces. This is an option you may want to consider depending on the amount of time you have and your objectives.
