The Gl bal You

Adventures on the Wilde River!


Reading Your Map

Before we can start our adventures, let’s learn a little bit about the Wilde River.

Pull out your maps and take a look…


Reading Your Map

Where does the Wilde River begin?

Moore Lake


Reading Your Map

How many countries does the Wilde flow through??

3


Reading Your Map

What body of water does the Wilde empty into??

Blue Ocean


Reading Your Map

People in Northland get food from fishing. Where is their fishing site?

Wilde’s Mouth


Reading Your Map

People in Eastend also get food from fishing. What body of water do their fish come from?

Blue Ocean


Reading Your Map

Which country has only the Wilde River as a source of water?

Southland


Good Job!!

It looks like you’re ready to face the rapids ahead of you…

Next stop:

Multinational Detective!


Catastrophe on the Wilde!

A week ago, people in Southland found dead fish in the Wilde River. For the next two days, so many fish died that the people could not fish for food…


STOP!!

Draw an X through Southland’s fishing industry.


A day later, people in northern Eastend started having terrible stomach cramps…


STOP!!

Draw an X through the northern two water collection sites in Eastend.


The next day, people in Northland found some dead fish near the mouth of the Wilde River. They could have kept fishing, but they stopped just to be safe.


STOP!!

Draw an X through the fishing site in Northland.


That night, the news reported that two days before the trouble in Southland, Eastend had so many dead fish that it had to stop fishing and such bad drinking water that it had to stop collecting out of the river.


STOP!!

Draw an X through all of Eastend’s fishing and water collection sites.


Not only that, but the E3 factory had shut down after a visit from the Safety Department!!


STOP!!

Circle the E3 factory site in Eastend.


Detective Report

Your job now is to write your Detective Report. Using all the information you’ve gathered on your map, make a statement about what probably caused problems in all three countries…


Changes on the Wilde:

An Electric Situation

  • Northland wants to generate electricity.

  • It decides to build a dam across the river next to Springfield.

  • Fish that live in the ocean need to get back up the river to Moore Lake in order to reproduce.


Changes on the Wilde:

An Electric Situation

  • There is no way for the fish to get upstream past the dam.

  • Once the dam is built, the area behind it will be flooded for miles and will become a lake half the size of Moore Lake.


1. Draw in the dam next to Springfield

2. Circle the fishing site closest to Moore Lake

3. Draw and shade in where the new lake would be


Now, fill in the “Country Affected” chart for this scenario…


Changes on the Wilde:

We Want Water

  • Southland and Northland decide they want to use more water from the Wilde River.

  • They sign a treaty agreeing to cooperate in building a new canal.


Changes on the Wilde:

We Want Water

  • The canal will bring water from the Wilde River to Greenville and then to Northland’s industry center.

  • From there, the canal will empty into the ocean.

  • This canal will take about half of the water out of the Wilde River.


1. Draw a canal from the Wilde River to Greenville.

2. Draw the canal from Greenville to the N1 factory.

3. Draw the canal from N1 to the Blue Ocean.


Now, fill in the “Country Affected” chart for this scenario…


Changes on the Wilde:

No More Minnows

  • People of Fairview love to go boating on the Wilde River on the weekends.

  • However, the people don’t like it when seaweed growing in the river gets wrapped around their propellers.


Changes on the Wilde:

No More Minnows

  • Eastend decides to put herbicide in the river to kill the seaweed.

  • This same seaweed is home to the tiny Wilde Minnow, that provides food for the larger fishin the river.

  • Without the seaweed, the minnows will die.


1. Circle a long section of the river near Fairview.

2. Draw a rectangle around all the fishing sites on the Wilde River.


Now, fill in the “Country Affected” chart for this scenario…


GREAT JOB!!

You navigated the waters of the Wilde River successfully!

Keep up the good work and keep thinking about how an event at one place may affect people far away…
