Welcome to Your Watershed Student Lessons

Equip your middle school students with crucial insights as they explore the significance of the Chesapeake Bay watershed. The self-paced lessons provide students with engaging tools to reinforce new learning and check their understanding. Students will use models to understand the movement of water, examine components of a watershed, and investigate ways to ensure access to clean water for the well-being of humans, plants, animals, and the environment.

Assign these lessons to deepen student understanding of science and environmental literacy with video clips, essential questions, learning activities and additional student supports.
