What you will need:
- Writing utensil, markers, or crayons
- Think of places around your home, school, or neighborhood where water might travel.
- Create your own list or use the Water Travel Check List below to help identify water's path.
- Falls on the roof and down the gutters
- Runs into the street
- Soaks into the ground
- Drains down the storm sewer
- Hits the top of an umbrella
- Flows to a nearby stream
- Waters the garden
- Filters to the roots for use by a plant
- Falls in a bird bath
- Drank by an animal
- (Optional) Do this on a rainy day. Follow a rain drop and check off the locations the rain drop goes on your checklist. If it's not a rainy day, follow the water coming from a sprinkler, a garden hose, a watering can, or imagine where a raindrop might go!
