The South Carolina Aquarium, in partnership with teachers, has created this online curriculum for teachers to use with their students in the classroom. Our Watersheds unit is geared toward 5th and 7thgrade teachers because the standards covered are heavily 5th and 7th grade science standards. All the activities contain background information, procedures, materials list, standards addressed, assessments, curriculum extensions and a resource list. We hope teachers will enjoy this resource!
If you are a teacher planning to bring your students to the Aquarium to participate in our Watershed classroom program, we recommend completing the following activities before your visit. Those activities include: What are Watersheds, Topography and Water Quality.
