Water in Your Community
Site Leader: Part of this activity involves discussion with partners. Please be sure that everyone has a partner before they engage in the activity, and help people keep track of time.
What is your mental map of the most important body of water in or near your community? Take five minutes to sketch a map of that body of water, including the physical and human geographical features surrounding it. For the remaining ten minutes, discuss with a partner the patterns you see and any issues associated with those patterns.
