For our Introduction to Environmental Science class, our 6th graders focus on the hydrosphere. They learn about watersheds, human impacts on water quality, and they explore contemporary issues involving water pollution. At the end of this single-quarter class, the kids create projects that explore the question: "How an I, as a middle-school student, help people understand, protect, or improve water systems locally, nationally, or worldwide?"
