Groundwater: A Vital Resource. Student Activities.
Taylor, Carla, Ed.
Twenty-three activities dealing with various aspects of groundwater are provided in this manual. The activities are arranged under four headings: (1) the water cycle; (2) water distribution in soils (considering such topics as calculating water table depth and purifying water by filtering); (3) water quality (considering such topics as acid rain, carbon dioxide in water, nitrates in groundwater, and total suspended solids); and (4) community aspects (investigating such areas as groundwater rights, farmers and water pollution, how a settling tank works, and groundwater pollution). Each activity includes the recommended grade levels for the activity (ranging from grade 3 to grade 12), objectives, list of materials needed, procedures, background information, list of references, student worksheet, and suggested follow-through activities.
