This unit is about watersheds, or drainage basins. We live in the Rappahannock River Watershed, which means that everything that we put in our drains and streams will end up in the Rappahannock River. This affects everyone and everything that lives in or near the river. And, since the Rappahannock River ends up in the Chesapeake Bay, what we do affects all of the people and creatures that live in and around the bay.
You will be creating a working model of a watershed. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to find a link to this project.
