        The Great Rain Drain

        Explore how excess water flows out of a city or town through storm-drain systems in this media gallery from the PLUM LANDING: Explore Outdoors. This media gallery pairs a PLUM LANDING animation and a related hands-on activity to provide about one hour of programming. Start by having kids watch The Hidden Alligator Mystery, a short animated video about a thrilling boat ride through a city’s underground drainage tunnels. Then, head outdoors to track water flow in your neighborhood with the hands-on activity H2O on the Go. If time permits, wrap up your day by completing one or more of the “Explore Some More” activities.

        Find more environmental science resources at the PLUM LANDING website.

        The Hidden Alligator Mystery
