Determining the Percolation Rate of Soil

Pupils discover how water moves through different types of soils. In groups, they use the same sample from a previous activity and empty it into a milk carton in which they have layered with cheesecloth to determine the percolation rate. They answer lab questions related to the experiment and share their answers with the class.
