Water Spotters in the MESA Classroom:

Rain, weather, and change

The Water SpottersMiddle school lesson suite was developed by teachers and scientists. It includes new lessons that have been developed in coordination with science teachers that emphasize both core scientific standards and application learning about the water cycle. The modules include original lessons and lessons with expanded original material to teach about water and water isotopes.

The Water Spotters program uses video to teach collection protocols and give background on the project. Weather station data from schools are disseminated online alongside the rainwater collection protocols.
