Brainstorm some of the bodies of surface water found in the world. Write the list alphabetically here. Use online resources to make our list more complete.
Using sticks, choose a body of water to research and find examples of in the world.
Create a ThingLink image of a map that has a few examples of your assigned body of water on it. Place links to photos, videos, and informational websites wherever their bodies of water are.
Although mine is not perfect, listen to mine as an example. Use QuickTime Screen Recorder so that you can show visuals while you speak (a screencast).
Students need to create a blog entry on our "Bodies of Water" blog. They need to embed their ThingLink image on a blog entry that is entitled with the name of their body of water.
Read the SRB chapter for this lesson & make any necessary adjustments based on what you read.
Add a Quality Booster or Compliment to each one that you listen to.
Using our United States map, find at least two examples of each of the bodies of water listed on the Science Companion workbook. Complete the following page in your Science Notebook on Science Companion Prime. Take screen shots of your answers and post them on a blog entry entitled, "Watery Earth 4.3 - Finding Surface Water."
Using our Illinois map, answer the following questions in your Science Notebook & put screen shots of your answers in the blog entry from above:
- Do you see any bodies of surface water in your state that you couldn't find on the United States map? If so, list them below.
- Did you find any bodies of surface water on the United States map that you can't find in your state? If so, list them below.
- List the names of three bodies of water in your state. Next to the name, identify the type of body of water (river, lake, marsh, ocean, reservoir, etc.).
Using our Arlington Heights map, answer the following questions in your Science Notebook & put screen shots of your answers in the blog entry from above:
- Do you see any bodies of surface water in your local area that you couldn't find on your state map or the United States map? If so, list them below:
- Did you find any bodies of surface water on your state map or on the United States map that you can't find in your local area? If so, list them below:
- List the names of three bodies of water in your local area. Next to the name, identify the type of body of water (river, lake, marsh, ocean, reservoir, etc.).
- What bodies of surface water did you find while examining the three maps?
- Were there any types of surface water on the Arlington Heights map that you weren’t able to find on the Illinois map? If so, why?
- Were there any types of surface water on the Illinois map that you couldn’t find on the United States map? If so, why?
- What are some names of the bodies of water in Illinois and Arlington Heights? What bodies of water did you identify?
- Is there a lot of water on the earth?
- Is there any reason why we should conserve water, or is there plenty to go around?
- What kinds of things do we need water for again?
- To do those things, should we use salt water or fresh water?
- How hard is it to convert salt water to fresh water?
- How much of the world is fresh water and how much is salt water?
Demonstrate "Earth's Water Model."
- When the 10 containers are full, that will represent all of the water that is on the earth.
- Use page 112 in the Teacher's Guide to add the correct amount of water to the milk cartons.
- I will let you know how much of each of the following types of water is on earth using our model:
- fresh water on the surface
- fresh water underground
- fresh water frozen in glaciers and ice caps
- fresh water in the air
