|Aquifer Model in a Tank|
Students participating in this lab activity will construct a simulated aquifer in the classroom. The aquifer is constructed from readily available materials, and instructions, data sheets, vocabulary, and diagrams are provided. This simple model is intended for student inquiry into groundwater systems. Students are instructed to try things (within the context of the model), observe what happens, and record and interpret their observations. After this inquiry they will better understand aquifers and the issues of climate, spring flow, environmental protection, and water use.
