Build Your Own Aquifer

Pupils 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.

Lesson Planet is a wonderful resource. I can easily search for lesson ideas and love the great printables. Lesson Planet has cut down on my planning time because I can usually find tried and true lessons on any subject. Why reinvent the wheel?
