Source Water Pathways - Recommended for Grades 4 - 6

Perkiomen Creek (G. Halus) - 15.JPG

Source water pathways including river systems, aquifers, lakes and oceans all hold water essential to our daily lives. How much of this water is available to us? Where does our drinking water come from? What do we need to do to ensure that clean, fresh water flows under and above ground to quench the thirst of all plants and animals? Engage your students in experiments, activities, presentations and demonstrations that serve as a touchstone when called upon to make future decisions.
