Sorry I can't be with you, students. I'm off with the 6th graders on the Olympic Peninsula, Washington state. We're learning about hydrology, the study of water. Our lodging, Nature Bridge, sits alongside Crescent Lake. We do some hikes along the Elwha River and some smaller streams. You'll love it next year. For today's work, I'd like to extend what we've been working on with "Follow the Flow" by learning about waterfalls. Waterfalls are my favorite natural phenomenon. Maybe they will become yours too. Use these 3 links to answer the questions on my Google Form below. You may work with one partner. If you finish, return to Typing Agent. Thank you, ----Mr. Cohen
