Second Grade

Creek & Stream


In this lesson students will learn what a watershed is and get to know the Upper Alameda Creek Watershed by coloring all the water on the map. Then they can watch a video about what else besides water flows through a watershed. They finish the lesson with a quick quiz to show what they have learned!
