Why Lesson Planet?
Learn all about where ground water is stored, how it moves, and how it is accessed in a detailed and thorough 10-page reading. Whether supplementing reading for an existing environmental or earth science course or providing background for a research project, one does not need to live in New England for the reading to be relevant. It could be a good challenge to invite learners to discover more about the aquifers and ground water situation in their own communities.
- Very comprehensive reading with good graphics to support the concepts
- Vocabulary is in bold, making it easy to identify
- Fairly dense reading may be difficult for some high schoolers, but could be differentiated by having lower readers interpret the graphics
