Abstract

Stormwater runoff can pick up and carry pollutants over impervious surfaces and get discharged directly into local bodies of water. The goal of this project was to spread awareness on the impacts of stormwater by supporting local fifth grade teachers at Shrewsbury, Holden, Charlton, and Hopkinton by interviewing stakeholders and building off of existing curriculum while complying with the Next Generation Science Standards. A 5th Grade Watershed Unit was developed and will become a viable resource for the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, Central Massachusetts Regional Stormwater Coalition, the Think Blue Campaign, and the fifth grade science teachers at the project schools.
