Now that rainy season is here in Hawai’i, it’s time to teach your students about the watershed! In this fun, simple lab, students use squirt bottles and trays of flour to replicate how raindrop size affects forest health. Raindrops and Watersheds: Size Matters.
Follow that lab up with Unit 1 in the Rain Forest Module. The unit includes several lessons and a lab investigating the relationship between rainfall, intact rain forest, and human water supply. Why is the Rain Forest Wet?
Have fun and stay dry (or not)!
