Activity 2

This file contains instructions for Activity 2. The activity introduces students to Google Earth, asks them to find their home, and map out the path that storm water takes their home to the ocean. Students then "fly" the path, identify the regions the water passes through, and measure the distance the water travels. Students are asked to compare their watersheds and think about the places that pollution from their neighborhood effects.
