he curriculum is a series of interactive hands-on activities, supported by background information, designed to engage students of all grade levels in investigating the Ohio River and its importance to the states through which it flows. The curriculum encompasses four primary objectives: to demonstrate that the Ohio River is part of a total ecosystem that includes its floodplain and watershed; to introduce the biological, physical, and chemical aspects of water and their importance to living things; to explore human use of the Ohio River and the environmental impacts of human activity on the river and its watershed; and to examine the Ohio River's influence on historical cultures and its implications for shaping modern life. Students will investigate each of these program areas in depth, focusing on such topics as the natural history of the river and its flora and fauna; the water cycle; the effects of physical and chemical properties on water quality and the organisms inhabiting a water body; the many uses of water and the importance of water conservation; drinking water and wastewater treatment; and cultures and settlements along the Ohio River Valley from ancient times to the present.
