Take a Watershed Walk! 4th and 5th grade NGSS Performance Expectations ask students to think broadly about where water occurs on Earth and its power over time. Join the Teaching Science Outdoors: Urban Partnerships’ Team to go OUTSIDE and explore the Grand River watershed. We’ll build observation skills, connection and awareness of local water resources. Using phenomena - observable, measurable natural events - in the local schoolyard, provides relevance and engagement for students. TSO-UP works to share best practices for outdoor teaching that support your use of existing Michigan Science Standard-aligned curriculum in your schoolyard.
