New Review Aquifer in a Cup
Young scientists create their very own aquifers in this science lesson on ground water. After learning about how some people get their drinking water from underground wells, young learners use sand, modeling clay, and aquarium rocks to create models of aquifers in clear plastic cups.

New Review Building an Model Aquifer
With almost half of Americans relying on groundwater supplies, it is more important than ever to protect aquifers from possible contaminants. Working in small groups, young environmentalists explore this problem as they create an aquifer model and use it to perform a series of investigations.

Aquifer in a Cup
Students create their own aquifers. They observe what happens in an aquifer and make predictions when pollutants are added. They discover how ground water is stored in aquifers underground and examine how substances can travel with the water through the soil into the aquifer.

New Review Protecting Your Drinking Water
Having a clean, reliable source of drinking water is essential for any community, but in many cases this is easier said than done. Engage young environmentalists in exploring the five factors affecting vulnerability of a groundwater supply with this simulation activity.

Building a Model Aquifer
A noble undertaking, guide your class to build a model of an aquifer. They use food coloring in the water to experiment with how it can be contaminated and examine how the soil can act as a filter. Using their data, they plot time versus distance and time versus concentration graphs.

Water: A Necessity for Life
Students examine types of aquifers and make a model landfill. In this water usage lesson, students determine the difference between confined and unconfined aquifers. They build a model landfill, observe it for two weeks, and analyze what type of influence it has on the water supply.

Land and People: Cape Cod Activity 1
Young scholars make a model aquifer to study the uniqueness of Cape Cod's ground-water system. Using the model., they determine how easily contamination spreads in the aquifer system by completing and recording three activities. Using the student packet, they read about and discuss the concepts of porosity and permeability as they apply to the experiments.

Build Your Own Aquifer
Ever wondered how an aquifer works? Introduce your class to the amazing way many people get water by exploring how underground aquifers work. Two fun hands-on activities are used to help kids understand what an aquifer is, how it works, and how it can become polluted.

What Goes On Down Under?
High schoolers explore the sources for recharge and discharge of groundwater. They research the connection between surface water and groundwater. Students construct a model of an aquifer and explore recharge and discharge of the aquifer.

Groundwater Model Building Instructions
Pupils participate in an interactive model in order to discover the geologic structure and properties of aquifers, the movement of groundwater, and the methods by which geologists recognize point and non-point sources of pollution.
