This lesson uses paper models to help students understand karst processes, why caves develop in limestone, and how karst topography develops. Introductory materials explain how ground- or surface waters can dissolve limestone, some features of karst landscapes (sinkholes, disappearing streams), and some features of caves (stalagmites, stalactites, flowstone). A teacher's guide provides patterns and ... Full description.

This Starting Point webpage is a summary of a role-playing resource called Science in the Courtroom: The Woburn Toxic Trial. In this exercise, hydrology students role-play expert witnesses in a mock trial dealing with contamination of groundwater. Students prepare for the role-play by studying the movement of groundwater and the transport of contaminants through computational and map exercises and ... Full description.
