Where did all the water that you poured into your cup go?
How does this model simulate what really happens to groundwater in the world? (How does water get underground? Where is water stored underground?)
Based on this experiment, what can happen to a drop of water after it falls on the ground?
Do you think humans use groundwater? If so, what do we use groundwater for?
How do humans get groundwater to the surface? Is this easy to do?
Do you think groundwater can move anywhere else? Where? How does it move?
How have your ideas about what happens to a drop of water changed since you started learning more about groundwater?
The water went to the bottom of the cup and some of it sat on the top of the sand.
It models that it takes a while and a lot of water for it to make it to the gravel, or bedrock.It also models each part of the ground and how tough it is for the water to get through it.
I learned that after the water hit the ground it has five layers to go through to make it to the bedrock.
I think that humans use ground water to keep there plants moist. I also think that humans use ground water to drink.
I think that humans get ground water by drilling. I think they do this my using drills, and equipment that can get suck up the water, sort of like a vacuum.
I think it can move through each layer and can go through the soil, rock and other parts of the ground.
My idea of ground water has really changed since I have learned about it. First I thought that the water would go under the surface and then dissolve, but now I know that the water goes through a long process and makes it to the bedrock at the bottom.
