This Permeability and Porosity of Somerset County Sediments lesson plan also includes:
Middle schoolers predict and test the permeability and porosity of sediments in Somerset County, New Jersey. They discuss what how porous they think the sediment of HMS grounds is and why. Students walk around the HMS campus and collect six samples of sediment from six different areas of the grounds. They create a hypothesis within their groups about the permeability of each sample.
