Aquifer Model

The model offers students a bird's eye view of how the water cycle and groundwater interact with each other from the clouds down to the aquifer. This aquifer model provides multiple opportunities for various discussions about porosity, permeability, run-off, pollution, and many more.

Approximately 45 - 60 minutes.

Stream Table

The stream table can be used for multiple grade levels and topics. Students will observe weathering, erosion, deposition, delta formation, flood plain, and land formation to name a few. The table provides opportunities for various discussion topics related to human impact, conservation, pollution, and effects of erosion. The stream table is usually paired with a skittle weathering & erosion experiment.

Approximately 45 minutes.

Build Your Own Aquifer

Students will have the opportunity to discuss a water pollution scenario that could potentially harm their city's water source and aquifer. They will work in groups to construct an aquifer and discuss each layer as they build. To conclude this activity, students will test their aquifer to determine if their water source was polluted or if they saved their city. This activity is targeted for junior high - high school students.

Approximately 30-45 minutes.

We are pleased to offer multiple TEKS based curriculum options for all grade levels, free of charge, to any school within our district.  Each set of curriculum features in-depth, hands on activities to aid students in understanding our intricate water system and the importance of conserving it.  For more information contact, Stephanie Keith.
