Water is Life
What do you have in common with birds, turtles, fish, and insects? We all depend on water to live and thrive!
This student-paced course focuses on how animals and people use and depend on water.
Students will explore a model pond and the animals that live there throughout the seasons. They’ll also hear from Joy Hobbs, a scientist working at the Science Museum’s St. Croix Watershed Research Station, who discusses why clean water in lakes, streams, and ponds is important for all life living in or near them. To encourage students to think deeply about water quality and how we can all make a difference in our communities through advocacy, they will share observations and answer guided questions throughout the lesson.
