Key Concepts Science - Land and Water ! •The flow of water and slope of the land affect erosion and depositon.! •Landforms, human activity and organisms can change the direction and flow of water.! Social Studies - Delaware History and Geography! •Use maps and other geo-graphics to interpret information about Delaware.! •Recognize •Describe 
 regions of Delaware defined by physical factors! how a region can change over time.

  3. 3. Geography Standard One: Students will develop a personal geographic framework, or "mental map," and understand the uses of maps and other geo-graphics [MAPS]. Geography Standard Two: Students will develop a knowledge of the ways humans modify and respond to the natural environment [ENVIRONMENT].

  9. 9. Analyzing our results Man vs Nature! Impacts on our geographical area! Examining our local watershed ! Stream study
  10. 10. Creating Data 
 With ArcView
  11. 11. Watershed Analysis What is a watershed? ! A watershed is a specific land area that drains water into a river system or other body of water – elevation of the land determines this land area! Run ROBOCOW – http://www.agr.gc.ca/pfra/flash/robocow/en/robocow_e.htm!
