3/5/12 A/B DayLEQ: What different bodies of water makeup the freshwater hydrosphere?1. What is a hydrothermal vent?2. What is an estuary?3. What is an upwelling?4. How would you describe the intertidalzone?5. How would you describe the neriticzone?
Today’s LEQ: What different bodies of water make up the freshwater hydrosphere?By the end of today, you should be able to…1. Identify the different bodies of freshwater2. Explain key facts about how humans use these different water resources
Copy THIS by the numbers:1. Glacier Use the reading to2. Groundwater unscramble the3. River information in your graphic organizer! Put4. Wetland the definitions,5. Watershed examples, and pictures6. Lake next to the word that7. Aquifer describes them!8. Tributary
RAINSOIL Water sinks into the groundROCK This is “groundwater”
Water WellHOT Q:Whatfreshwaterresource dowe use to getwater fromwells?
HOT Q:This area of landcollects water anddrains it into riversand lakes, whichthen carry it to theocean. What dowe call this?
15. HOT Q:Where is most of the fresh water on Earth located?A. In the oceansB. In the polar ice capsC. In rivers and streamsD. In groundwater
16. HOT Q:What are two sources of fresh water used by cities for drinking water?A. Glaciers and lakesB. Rivers and ocean waterC. Wetlands and polar iceD. Aquifers and rivers
Let’s Practice:1. Draw a map of an area of land (it can be real or imaginary!)2. Use the materials at your desk to draw and label the following on your area of land: Draw and label these: Shade or mark areas where -river -wetlands you can find these: -lake -estuary (be sure to make a key!!!) -ocean -glacier -watershed -tributaries -town/city -groundwater -agricultural land -aquifer
Summarizer1. Why do you think humans don’t use glaciers and polar ice caps for drinking water, even though they make up MOST of the freshwater on earth?2. Name and describe the two freshwater resources that are below the ground.3. Why is it important for people that live in a watershed area to keep from using chemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides?4. How are wetlands and estuaries similar? How are they different?
