2018 - Elementary GLOBE Water Module

Water Module

Willow Creek looks a bit different since the last time the GLOBE Kids visited. In this story, students will learn how aquatic critters help describe a creek and the importance of observational study.

By the end of this module, students will understand how scientists use macroinvertebrates to study water quality, know how to take measurements with scientific tools and how to apply their measurements to a scientific investigation.

Cover of the book “Discoveries at Willow Creek.” Three children by a blue creek, with trees and rocks around. One is holding a book and the others are holding magnifying glasses. In the top corner, there is the Elementary GLOBE logo.
