Streams of Data: Lesson Plans and Resources

Streams of Data has created fourth-grade lesson plans for a five-day sequence about rivers and flooding. The goal of these lessons is to support development of analytical thinking skills around authentic science data. These goals include:

  • Connecting data to real-world events or objects;
  • Considering data sources and limitations; and
  • Engaging in argument with evidence

In addition to the lesson plans, find links to data sources, information about creating data representations such as the hydrographs, the set up and use of stream tables, and more.
