Welcome to Stream Team!
Stream Team is a combination of in-person programming led by FNFSR and teachers guiding their students in learning. Stream Teams will choose multiple in-person programs to introduce various watershed topics throughout the year and develop a Public Product/Service Project that students will complete by the end of the semester or year. The in-person programs are designed to support multiple SOL’s and can be modified to suit different grades.
In person programs include
- What’s my Watershed Address?
- Dragonfly Pond
- The Incredible Journey
- Water Quality and Chemistry
- Energy in the Watershed
- How to Plan a Public Product/Stewardship Project
- Art in the Watershed
- Benthic Macroinvertebrates ID program
- Geology of the Valley
- Geography and You
How it works
This program is free and open to grades 3-12. Classrooms receive one to two FNFSR-led programs per month introducing a new aspect of their watershed community and how they can engage with that community. Teachers can customize their Stream Team Experience, choosing which programs they want and when FNFSR staff will present in class. For middle school and high school classes, Stream Team will operate on a semester schedule and for elementary students the program will run the entire school year. Mid-way through the semester or year, students will design a public product to present to their peers; products could range from a school-wide energy audit, to a recycling and composting workshop, a web page, or even a pollinator garden. Students will be invited to the Shenandoah Stream Team Symposium, where they will have the opportunity to present their project and what they have learned, participate in a community art project, and more!
