DuPage County 3rd – 12th Grade Teachers: The Enviroscape Watershed Model is an excellent way to bring water education to your classroom. You will learn how to use the watershed model in your classroom. This award winning STEM Teacher Workshop includes:
Jam packed workshop focused on the watershed model
Support resources to take back to your classroom
Tools and knowledge needed to use the model in your classroom
Information on local water issues including water quality and stormwater management
The Enviroscape model teaches kids and adults about point and non-point source pollution. It’s a hands-on activity that demonstrates where pollution could stem from in a community.
The DuPage County Stormwater Committee and SCARCE support water education in our schools. The Stormwater Committee has provided one new Enviroscape watershed model for each public Middle School in DuPage County plus additional Enviroscapes available for checkout from SCARCE. Each model includes accessories and additional teaching resources including a video starring Bill Nye the Science Guy.
SCARCE delivered the models to the middle schools and trained at least two teachers from each school. We continue to offer the Watershed Model Workshop, and each middle school should have two trained teachers. In addition, we are anxious to train teachers from the remaining public schools, at any grade level, and teachers at private schools. All DuPage teachers have access to an Enviroscape Watershed Model through SCARCE’s model loaning program. Contact us to check one (or more) out. See the attachments to the Watershed Model Project for Middle Schools for more ideas on how to use the Enviroscape Watershed Model for your classroom.
Enviroscape Watershed Model
Prepare for World Water Monitoring Month (9/18-10/18). Every DuPage County public middle school has received a model and we have models for other schools to borrow. Teachers must be trained to use this unique model of a watershed.
Take the class, borrow the model, and drench your students with wonderful water education
Cross language and cultural barriers
Take the complexity out of understanding serious environmental issues
Discover and learn to use the model that offers a birds-eye view of a watershed
Participants, trained to use it, may borrow the model for use in the classroom
Great for teachers of geography, science, health, special ed (this model is hands-on and visual), and all interested educators.
