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?
Some was absorbed and some went to the bottom of the cup and broke through the filters.
Because it simulates all of the challenges water has to go through to reach past the first few layers of soil and all of the other layers. Also the coffee filter helps it simulate how long it takes too. Another thing is we had lots of sand and gravel like the actual layers of the earth.
It could be absorbed by the ground or if there is enough of the water it could sink down through the soil or different layers of the earth.
I think that we use ground water for geothermal energy and for well water.
It is not an easy process but humans get the water from wells or pipes.
Well it can evaporate and go upwards and downwards from rain it can go diagonal from the tectonic plates shifting and the last but not least side to side but the only time that would happen is when it would hot bedrock.
My idea did change because when I thought of that process I didn't take into consideration the different layers.
