Groundwater Lab part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Introductory Courses:Activities
This lab uses "ant farm" groundwater models to demonstrate groundwater flow and the behavior of wells. The lab is organized so that students have to predict the behavior of the model before observing it.
Who Polluted Surface and Groundwater in This Place? part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Introductory Courses:Activities
Students use water-well data and geology to determine which site caused groundwater and surface-water contamination.
Investigative Case - "Goodbye Honey Buckets" part of Investigative Case Based Learning:Examples
Students will investigate arctic geology and hydrology as well as tundra ecology as they consider options for sewage treatment. Public safety, environmental impact, and issues of construction and engineering will be explored.
Pop Bottle Hydrograph part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Create hydrograph and explore changes in physical parameters on form of hydrograph. Set up is easy: water is sprinkled into a model watershed (sand in pop bottle) and allowed to dribble onto cheap digital scale. ...

Stream Table Lab part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
This is a lab activity in which students play with a stream table to learn about stream processes, how water and sediment interact, and to learn about basic stream-related calculations.
Water flow in the subsurface part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Using an off-the-shelf mock-up of a hydrological system, students are asked to predict where water will flow. Dyed water is injected into various parts of the system so that the students can see the flow patterns.
