The water pooled into the bottom, and stopped at "bedrock (bottom of the cup)
How does this model simulate what really happens to groundwater in the world? (How does water get underground? Where is water stored underground?)
It simulates by the water finding passageways to bedrock, dropping the water and watching it pass the layers.
Based on this experiment, what can happen to a drop of water after it falls on the ground?
It will pass the layers, until it hits bedrock, or is absorbed by the humus. (not food)
Do you think humans use groundwater? If so, what do we use groundwater for?
Yes humans on the Oregon trail sometimes needed to dig wells.
How do humans get groundwater to the surface? Is this easy to do?
Kinda. Dig a well, and suck up all the water so you can use it
Do you think groundwater can move anywhere else? Where? How does it move?
Rain can move water, the current can move water, we can move water. Where? Anywhere!
How have your ideas about what happens to a drop of water changed since you started learning more about groundwater?
So much. I always wondered how water got back to the sky once it was consumed. Now I know.
