Upon completion of the unit, students will be able to:

  • Work collaboratively in teams
  • Keep accurate records
  • Analyze graphical data
  • Operate the RiverWeb Simulation
  • Use simulation data to determine how land use affects water quality
  • Create a math model based on the simulation data and use this math model to calculate the percentage each improvement would have on the system
  • Use the jigsaw method to combine all data collected into a comprehensive picture of the impact on the watershed of all the indicators
  • Determine the 3 improvements that would have the most positive impact on the watershed for the indicator assigned
  • Understand factors affecting local water use
  • Compare water samples collected from local waterways to the simulation and to local water standards
  • Navigate a city utility website to gather water standards
  • Understand the engineering design process (see http://www.nasa.gov/pdf/324206main_Design_Packet_II.pdf)
  • Design and build a simple water filtration system
  • Reclaim water using a filtration system
  • Make qualitative and quantitative observations about water samples
  • Compare and contrast experimental data with known standards
  • Use the math model to predict reclamation outcomes with s filtration system
  • Read and summarize articles about NASA innovations in water purification

Each mini-lesson contains the objectives and national standards specific to the topic.
