The materials in this educational packet consist of an overview, three lesson plans, student data sheets, and a poster. The overview describes the flow of a river from its source to its mouth. A glossary and list of reference materials are included. The lesson plans provide a statement of purpose, list of learning outcomes, and instructional strategies. The first two lessons (involving a treasure hunt in which students match objects in the environment to a list of characteristics, and survey a river/stream and evaluate it from the point of view of a plant or animal) include a quiz and student data sheet. The third lesson is a water resources game in which students learn about the management problems of rivers and streams regarding water use. Ready-to-duplicate game items (including the game board) are provided. The two-sided poster has (on side 1) three pictures showing a river from its source to its mouth and (on side 2) background information for the water resources game in the third lesson. An additional student sheet is also included with a maze to complete on one side and instructions for making a note on a piece of driftwood on the other side. (JN)
