2018 - Elementary GLOBE Water Module

Water Module

The GLOBE Kids find that Willow Creek looks different than it did the last time they visited. In the storybook, they make observations, take measurements, and look for critters to describe the creek. Learning activities allow students to learn about tools for making science observations such as a magnifying lens and ruler. Then students describe how macroinvertebrates are adapted to their aquatic environment.
