Develop a model to represent the shapes and kinds of land and bodies of water in an area.
Develop a model to represent the state of Michigan and the Great Lakes, or a more local land area and water body.
Obtain information to identify where water is found on Earth and that it can be solid or liquid.
Obtain information to identify where fresh water is found on Earth, including the Great Lakes and Great Lakes Basin.
Generate and compare multiple solutions to reduce the impacts of natural Earth processes on humans.
