Build Your Own Aquifer

Learners explore how to create their own aquifer. They fasten straws on a container to represent well functions and pour sand to cover the bottom of the container. After pouring water into the sand, they model clay and cover the sand to represent a confining layer and pour water on the clay. After placing rocks over the sand and clay, they pour water and continue adding layers.

I am a homeschooling mother of two kids. I am enjoying the diversity LessonPlanet offers me in materials and worksheets since my kids are 5 years apart in age and grade level.
