Our amazing water quality project has come to an end. Students have been busy the last few weeks sharing presentations of their work with each other, writing final conclusion blogs (#comments4kids), and self-assessing their understandings of the Science standards that most closely fit our project.


Since we are beginning a completely different unit studying physical science students who are not done with any of the above can access any of it from home to finish. Their goal is to have all this work done by March 28 for student-led conferences! Parents don't forget that you can see what we're doing in Science by visiting my HW/Daily work site.


Chimacum Creek, both Forks and Mouth.

Here is a picture of the Pacific Northwest Peninsula. We find it on a map of WA state by looking for the peninsula that looks like a dragon. The dragon's head is where Port Townsend can be found while just south of there, where the heart of the dragon would be, we find Chimacum and Port Hadlock and Port Ludlow. On this image you can see the two forks of our creek. It's the west fork that passes through our campus so that is the one that we get all our data from.


Slightly more detailed view of Chimacum Creek, both forks, as they lead to the mouth.

This image is a zoomed in view of the first image. This one allows a slightly more detailed view of Chimacum Creek, including both the West and East Forks.

Thanks for the comment, Mr. Mannell. My 6th graders have enjoyed learning how to be good stewards for their watershed, especially their neighborhood creek. The creek runs through many families' properties so the kids needed to learn how to take care of this precious resource. We want to keep salmon returning to our creek year after year!

i know a lot about water quality and if the water is bad we would have no creeks or rivers and steams.animals would die and soon we would die to.The water is the most important thing we have in our lives. So we should keep it safe by no litter and having oil leak every where.

Hello 6th Grade,

Water quality is an issue around the world. With most of the Earth's surface covered in water, this might not appear to be a problem yet the amount of drinkable water is finite. Your studies are a necessary part of water quality management carried out by qualified scientists globally. You can be awakened to the need to manage our creeks and rivers much better.

When I was a Boy Scout here in Australia, we thought nothing of drinking from streams and creeks we came across. Now, with increased urbanisation and industry, I can't trust the water from most sources once it has travelled along waterways. Luckily the town's dam is supplied from a water catchment area where access is restricted.

Near my house is a creek with its upper reaches still having good quality water after rain but, near me, I know the quality can't be trusted. Run off from roads and properties and even the chance of more toxic chemicals leaching from a rubbush tip's run off when it rains would make the water doubtful.

While I taught students your age and younger, my background is in science so I was fascinated by your research.
